Bonsai Re-potting for Beginners in Egan
For each tree that is bonsai, eventually comes a time when its root system has taken all the space in the pot, restraining additional development required to support the plant that is growing. A process of root pruning and bonsai repotting must be completed to address this issue. The root system will be reorganized by it and permit the tree to grow vigorously and healthy for a long time. Suggestions in the next post will give you an overview about how to do bonsai repotting by yourself.
First, you should test whether it is already the time for bonsai repotting. This needs to be done each year during early spring, when the tree remains in dormancy. Gradually ease the tree from its own pot and analyze the rootball. Should 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, in which the tree will likely be put, or clean the old one. Cover the drainage holes using a plastic net, fastening it with a bit of wire. Then put a layer of grit on the bottom of the pot, then, and to allow emptying on top of it a layer of earth, where the tree will likely be put.

Another step in the bonsai repotting process is to displace the old ground in the rootball, preferably using chopsticks, when the pot is ready. Prune the longest roots using a sharp pair of scissors or shears. Also search for almost any decaying, dead, 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 place the tree in the prepared pot and tie it with the wire that is anchorage, to make certain that it won't be rocked by wind in the coming weeks, when its roots are not yet fully regenerated. Fill the remaining portion of the 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 is likely to have the ability to develop growing fine feeder roots in a more compact rootball, than what might be performed with roots that are unpruned. This can translate into more essential nutrients feeding your beloved plant, and in effect its improved health, vibrancy as well as your enjoyment of its beauty.
