Bonsai Repotting for Beginners in Blevins
For every bonsai tree, eventually comes a time when its root system has taken all the space in the pot, restraining further development required to support the growing plant. To deal with this issue, a process of root pruning and bonsai repotting must be completed. The root system will be reorganized by it and allow the tree to grow vigorously and healthy for a long time. Tips in the next post will give you an overview about how to do bonsai repotting by yourself.
First, you need to test whether it's already the time for repotting that is bonsai. When the tree is still in dormancy, this must be done every year during early spring. Gradually ease the tree out of its pot and analyze the rootball. In case you see long roots encircling the rootball or the interior side of the pot, it's already the time for bonsai repotting to be executed.
Prepare a brand new pot, in which the tree will soon be planted, or clean the old one. Cover the drainage holes with a plastic net, securing it with a bit of wire. Then place a layer of grit on the base of the pot, on top of it a layer of soil, on which the tree will soon be planted, and then to enable emptying.

Another step in the bonsai repotting procedure would be to displace the old land from your rootball, preferably using chopsticks, when the pot is prepared. Prune the longest roots using a sharp pair of shears or scissors. Also look for any dead, decaying, injured or infected roots, and remove them too to refrain from distributing 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 be sure that wind won't rocks it in the coming weeks, when its roots aren't yet completely regenerated. Fill the remainder of the pot with fresh soil, ensuring that there are no air pockets. Water the compost thoroughly, to help it settle.
The tree will need about six weeks for regeneration, with the bonsai repotting operation whole. After that, its root system is going to have the ability to develop freely, growing fine feeder roots in a denser rootball, than what could be achieved with unpruned roots. This can translate into more essential nutrients feeding your cherished plant, and in your enjoyment of its own beauty and effect its improved health, vibrancy.
