Bonsai Repotting for Beginners in Atoka

For every bonsai tree, eventually comes a time when its root system has taken all the space in the pot, limiting further development required to support the plant that is growing. An operation of bonsai repotting and root pruning should be performed, to deal with this problem. It will reorganize the root system and permit the tree to grow healthy and vigorously for several years. Tips in the next post provides you with an overview on how best to perform bonsai repotting by yourself.

First, you have to test whether it's already the time for repotting that is bonsai. This has to be done each year during early springtime, when the tree is still in dormancy. Gradually ease the tree out of its own pot and examine the rootball. In case you see long roots encircling the inner side of the pot or the rootball, it is already the time for bonsai repotting to be executed.
Prepare a new pot, in which the tree will likely be planted, or clean the old one. Cover the drainage holes using a plastic mesh, fastening it with a part of wire. Then place a layer of grit on the underside of the pot, to enable draining, and then on top of it a layer of earth, on which the tree will be planted.

When the pot is ready, the next part of the bonsai repotting process would be to displace the old soil in the rootball, preferably using chopsticks. Then prune the longest roots with a sharp pair of shears or scissors. Also look for just about any decaying, dead, wounded or infected roots, and remove them too to refrain from distributing root rot. Plan to remove up to 1/3 of general mass. that is root

Eventually set the tree in the pot that is prepared and tie it with the wire that is anchorage, to be sure that wind won't rocks it in the forthcoming weeks, when its roots are not yet completely regenerated. Fill the rest of the pot with fresh soil, ensuring that there are no air pockets. Water the compost thoroughly, to help it settle.

With the bonsai repotting operation whole, the tree will need about six weeks for regeneration. After that, its root system is likely to have the ability to grow freely, growing fine feeder roots in a more compact rootball, than what might be achieved with unpruned roots. This will definitely translate into more essential nutrients feeding your cherished plant, and in effect its improved health, vibrancy along with your enjoyment of its own beauty.
