Bonsai Re-potting for Beginners in Thornburg
For every tree that is bonsai, eventually comes a time when its root system has taken all the space in the pot, limiting additional development required to support the plant that is growing. An operation of root pruning and bonsai repotting should be carried out to address this problem. It enable the tree to grow healthy and vigorously for many years and will reorganize the root system. Tricks in the next post will give you an overview on the best way to do bonsai repotting by yourself.
First, you should check whether it is already the time for repotting that is bonsai. This needs to be done every year during early spring, when the tree remains in dormancy. Gently ease the tree from its own pot and analyze the rootball. Should you see long roots encircling the inner side of the pot or the rootball, it is already the time for bonsai repotting to be executed.
Prepare a new pot, in which the tree will be planted, or clean the old one. Cover using a plastic mesh, fastening it with a part of wire. Then put a layer of grit on the underside of the pot, of ground, where the tree will soon be put a layer on top of it, and after that to allow emptying.

When the pot is prepared, the next part of the bonsai repotting procedure would be to displace the old ground in the rootball, preferably using chopsticks. Prune the longest roots using a sharp pair of scissors or shears. Also search for any decaying, dead, injured or infected roots, and remove them too to avoid dispersing 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 are not yet completely regenerated. Fill the remaining pot with fresh soil, ensuring there are no air pockets. Water the compost thoroughly, 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 probably be able to develop growing fine feeder roots in a more compact rootball, than what could be performed with unpruned roots. This will definitely translate into more essential nutrients feeding your cherished plant, and in effect its improved health, vibrancy as well as your enjoyment of its beauty.
