Bonsai Re-potting for Beginners in Kilby
For each bonsai tree, eventually comes a time when its root system has taken all the space in the pot, limiting additional development needed to support the plant that is growing. A process of root pruning and bonsai repotting should be completed to deal with this issue. It enable the tree to grow healthy and vigorously for several years and will reorganize the root system. Tips in the following post will give you an overview on how to do bonsai repotting by yourself.
First, you should check on whether it's already the time for bonsai repotting. When the tree is still in dormancy, this has to be done every year during early springtime. Gradually ease the tree from its pot and examine the rootball. It's already the time for bonsai repotting to be carried out, should you see long roots encircling the interior side of the pot or the rootball.
Prepare a fresh pot, where the tree will probably be put, or clean the old one. Cover the drainage holes with a plastic net, securing it with a piece of wire. Then place a layer of grit on the underside of the pot, then, and to enable draining of ground, where the tree will be planted a layer on top of it.

When the pot is prepared, another part of the bonsai repotting procedure would be to displace the old soil from your rootball, preferably using chopsticks. Then prune the longest roots using a sharp pair of shears or scissors. Also search for any infected, dead, wounded or rotting roots, and remove them too to refrain from dispersing root rot. Plan to remove up to 1/3 of general root mass.
Finally put the tree in the prepared pot and tie it with the wire that is anchorage, to make certain that wind won't rocks it in the forthcoming weeks, when its roots aren't yet fully regenerated. Fill the remainder of the pot with fresh soil, ensuring 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 will likely be able to grow growing more fine feeder roots in a denser rootball, than what might be achieved with roots that are unpruned. This will translate into more essential nutrients feeding your plant that is cherished, and in effect its improved health, vibrancy along with your enjoyment of its own attractiveness.
