Bonsai Repotting for Beginners in Aflex
For each tree that is bonsai, eventually comes a time when its root system has taken all the space in the pot, restricting additional development required to support the growing plant. To address this problem, an operation of bonsai repotting and root pruning should be completed. The root system will be reorganized by it and allow the tree to grow vigorously and healthy for a long time. Hints in the next article provides you with an overview on the best way to do bonsai repotting by yourself.
First, you should test whether it's already the time for bonsai repotting. This must be done every year during early springtime, when the tree is still in dormancy. Gently ease the tree from its pot and examine 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 implemented.
Prepare a new pot, where the tree will soon be put, or clean the old one. Cover the drainage holes using a plastic mesh, securing it using a part of wire. Then put a layer of grit on the base of the pot, of ground, where the tree will probably be planted a layer on top of it, and after that to permit emptying.

The next step in the bonsai repotting process would be to displace the old land from the rootball, preferably using chopsticks when the pot is prepared. Prune the longest roots with a sharp pair of scissors or shears. Also look for any infected, dead, injured or decaying roots, and remove them too to refrain from dispersing root rot. Aim to remove up to 1/3 of general root mass.
Eventually set the tree inside the prepared pot and tie it with the wire that is anchorage, to make certain that it will not be rocked by wind in the coming weeks, when its roots aren't yet completely regenerated. Fill the rest 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 will undoubtedly be able to develop freely, growing fine feeder roots in a more compact rootball, than what could be performed with roots that are unpruned. This will definitely translate into more essential nutrients feeding your precious plant, and in effect its improved health, vibrancy as well as your enjoyment of its attractiveness.
