Bonsai Repotting for Beginners in Hamlet
For every tree that is bonsai, 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. A process of root pruning and bonsai repotting must be completed to deal with this problem. It is going to reorganize the root system and allow the tree to grow healthy and vigorously for many years. Hints in the next post will provide you with an overview on the best way to perform bonsai repotting by yourself.
First, you need to check on whether it's already the time for bonsai repotting. When the tree remains in dormancy, this must be done every year during early spring. Gradually ease the tree from its pot and examine the rootball. In case you see long roots encircling the interior side of the pot or the rootball, it is already the time for bonsai repotting to be implemented.
Prepare a brand new pot, where the tree will soon be planted, or clean the old one. Cover the drainage holes using a plastic mesh, fixing it with a part of wire. Then put a layer of grit on the underside of the pot, then, and to enable draining of ground, on which the tree will likely be put a layer on top of it.

When the pot is prepared, another step in the bonsai repotting process would be to displace the old ground from your rootball, preferably using chopsticks. Prune the longest roots using a sharp pair of scissors or shears. Also look for almost any roots that are decaying, dead, injured or infected, and remove them too to avoid spreading root rot. Aim to remove up to 1/3 of general root mass.
Finally set the tree in the prepared pot and tie it with the anchorage wire, to make certain that it won't be rocked by wind in the coming weeks, when its roots aren't yet fully regenerated. Fill the remainder of the pot with fresh soil, ensuring that there are no air pockets. Water the compost completely, to help it settle.
The tree will need about six weeks for regeneration, with the bonsai repotting operation complete. After that, its root system is going to be able to grow growing more fine feeder roots in a denser rootball, than what might be achieved with unpruned roots. This will translate into more essential nutrients feeding your plant that is precious, and in your enjoyment of its own beauty as well as effect its improved health, vibrancy.
