Bonsai Re-potting for Beginners in Duck Key
For every bonsai tree, eventually comes a time when its root system has taken all the space in the pot, limiting further development needed to support the growing plant. To address this issue, a process of bonsai repotting and root pruning must be carried out. It allow the tree to grow vigorously and healthy for a long time and will reorganize the root system. Suggestions in the following article will give you an overview about how to perform 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 has to be done annually during early spring. Gently ease the tree from its pot and examine the rootball. It is already the time for bonsai repotting to be executed, should you see long roots encircling the inner side of the pot or the rootball.
Prepare a new pot, where the tree will soon be put, or clean the old one. Cover the drainage holes using a plastic mesh, fastening it using a piece of wire. Then put a layer of grit on the bottom of the pot, of ground, where the tree will likely be planted a layer on top of it, after which to permit draining.

Another part of the bonsai repotting process would be to displace the old ground in the rootball, rather using chopsticks, when the pot is ready. Then prune the longest roots with a sharp pair of shears or scissors. Also look for just about any rotting, dead, wounded or infected roots, and remove them too to avoid distributing root rot. Plan to remove up to 1/3 of general root mass.
Eventually place the tree in the pot that is prepared and tie it with the anchorage wire, to be sure that it will not be rocked by wind in the forthcoming weeks, when its roots aren't yet fully regenerated. Fill the remaining pot with fresh soil, ensuring there are no air pockets. Water the compost thoroughly, to help it settle.
The tree will now need about six weeks for regeneration, with the bonsai repotting operation entire. After that, its root system will undoubtedly have the ability to grow freely, growing more fine feeder roots in a denser rootball, than what could be performed with unpruned roots. This will translate into more essential nutrients feeding your cherished plant, and in your enjoyment of its attractiveness and effect its improved health, vibrancy.
