Bonsai Re-potting for Beginners in Ta Ta Creek
For each bonsai tree, eventually comes a time when its root system has taken all the space in the pot, limiting additional development necessary to support the plant that is growing. An operation of root pruning and bonsai repotting must be performed to deal with this problem. It allow the tree to grow vigorously and healthy for a long time and will reorganize the root system. Suggestions in the next article will provide you with an overview how to perform bonsai repotting by yourself.
First, you should check whether it's already the time for bonsai repotting. This must be done annually during early spring, when the tree is still in dormancy. Gently ease the tree from its own pot and analyze the rootball. It is already the time for bonsai repotting to be carried out, if you see long roots encircling the interior side of the pot or the rootball.
Prepare a brand new pot, in which the tree will soon be planted, or clean the old one. Cover with a plastic net, fixing it with a part of wire. Then put a layer of grit on the bottom of the pot, then, and to allow draining on top of it a layer of soil, on which the tree will be put.

When the pot is prepared, the next step in the bonsai repotting procedure is to displace the old earth from the rootball, rather using chopsticks. Prune the longest roots using a sharp pair of scissors or shears. Also search for any infected, dead, wounded or rotting roots, and remove them too to avoid distributing root rot. Aim to remove up to 1/3 of general mass. that is root
Finally place the tree in the prepared pot and tie it with the anchorage wire, to be sure that it will not be rocked by wind in the coming weeks, when its roots are not yet completely regenerated. Fill the remaining pot with fresh soil, ensuring that there are no air pockets. Water the compost completely, 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 likely have the ability to grow growing more fine feeder roots in a more compact rootball, than what could be achieved with unpruned roots. This will definitely translate into more essential nutrients feeding your precious plant, and in effect its improved health, vibrancy and your enjoyment of its own beauty.
