Techniques For Bonsai Growing in Gilman, Colorado

Bonsai Repotting for Beginners in Gilman

For each bonsai tree, eventually comes a time when its root system has taken all the space in the pot, restricting additional development required to support the plant that is growing. A process of bonsai repotting and root pruning should be carried out, to deal with this issue. It's going to reorganize the root system and allow the tree to grow vigorously and healthy for several years. Hints in the next article will provide you with an overview on how best to do bonsai repotting by yourself.

First, you need to test whether it's already the time for bonsai repotting. When the tree continues to be in dormancy, this needs to be done annually during early springtime. Gradually ease the tree out of its own pot and analyze the rootball. In case you see long roots encircling the interior side of the pot or the rootball, it's already the time for bonsai repotting to be executed.
Prepare a new pot, in which the tree will soon be planted, or clean the old one. Cover with a plastic mesh, fastening it with a part of wire. Then place a layer of grit on the bottom of the pot, on top of it a layer of soil, where the tree will soon be planted, and after that to allow emptying.

The following part of the bonsai repotting process would be to displace the old earth from the rootball, preferably using chopsticks, when the pot is ready. Prune the longest roots with a sharp pair of scissors or shears. Also search for almost any roots that are dead, decaying, wounded or infected, and remove them too to avoid dispersing root rot. Plan to remove up to 1/3 of general root mass.

Finally set the tree in the pot that is prepared and tie it with the anchorage wire, to make sure that it won't be rocked by wind in the forthcoming weeks, when its roots aren't yet fully regenerated. Fill the remaining pot with fresh soil, ensuring that there are no air pockets. Water the compost thoroughly, to help it settle.

With the bonsai repotting operation complete, the tree will need about six weeks for regeneration. After that, its root system will probably be able to develop freely, growing more fine feeder roots in a denser rootball, than what might be performed with unpruned roots. This will definitely translate into more essential nutrients feeding your plant that is beloved, and in effect its improved health, vibrancy and your enjoyment of its beauty.
