Bonsai Re-potting for Beginners in Isle Au Haut


For every tree that is bonsai, eventually comes a time when its root system has taken all the space in the pot, restricting further development needed to support the growing plant. To deal with this dilemma, an operation of root pruning and bonsai repotting should be completed. It will reorganize the root system and allow the tree to grow healthy and vigorously for a long time. Tips in the following post will provide you with an overview on how to perform bonsai repotting by yourself.

First, you should check whether it's already the time for bonsai repotting. This has to be done annually during early spring, when the tree remains in dormancy. Gradually ease the tree from its own pot and examine the rootball. If you see long roots encircling the inner side of the pot or the rootball, it's already the time for bonsai repotting to be implemented.
Prepare a brand new pot, in which the tree will soon be put, or clean the old one. Cover the drainage holes with a plastic mesh, fastening it using a piece of wire. Then place a layer of grit on the base of the pot, on top of it a layer of earth, on which the tree will probably be put, after which to allow draining.

The next step in the bonsai repotting process is to displace the old ground in the rootball, preferably using chopsticks, when the pot is prepared. Prune the longest roots with a sharp pair of scissors or shears. Also search for almost any roots that are decaying, dead, injured or infected, and remove them too to refrain from spreading root rot. Aim to remove up to 1/3 of general mass. that is root

Eventually put the tree inside the pot that is prepared and tie it with the anchorage wire, to make sure that it won't be rocked by wind in the forthcoming 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 whole. After that, its root system is going to have the ability to grow freely, growing fine feeder roots in a denser rootball, than what could be performed with unpruned roots. This can translate into more essential nutrients feeding your precious plant, and in your enjoyment of its beauty and effect its improved health, vibrancy.
