Bonsai Repotting for Beginners in Foxtown
For every bonsai tree, eventually comes a time when its root system has taken all the space in the pot, limiting further development necessary to support the plant that is growing. A process of root pruning and bonsai repotting must be performed to address this dilemma. It is going to reorganize the root system and enable the tree to grow healthy and vigorously for several years. Hints in the following article will give you an overview on how best to do bonsai repotting by yourself.
First, you should check whether it is already the time for bonsai repotting. When the tree is still in dormancy, this needs to be done annually during early springtime. Gently ease the tree from its pot and analyze the rootball. It's already the time for bonsai repotting to be implemented, if you see long roots encircling the inner side of the pot or the rootball.
Prepare a brand new pot, where the tree will be put, or clean the old one. Cover the drainage holes using a plastic net, fixing it using a part of wire. Then place a layer of grit on the underside of the pot, then, and to permit emptying of earth, where the tree will soon be put a layer on top of it.

The next step in the bonsai repotting process would be to displace the old ground from the rootball, preferably using chopsticks, when the pot is prepared. Then prune the longest roots using a sharp pair of scissors or shears. Also search for almost any infected, dead, wounded or decaying roots, and remove them too to avoid dispersing root rot. Plan to remove up to 1/3 of general root mass.
Finally place the tree in the pot that is prepared and tie it with the wire that is anchorage, to ensure that it won't be rocked by wind in the forthcoming weeks, when its roots are not yet fully regenerated. Fill the remaining 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 complete. After that, its root system will likely be able to grow freely, growing fine feeder roots in a denser rootball, than what might be achieved with unpruned roots. This will definitely translate into more essential nutrients feeding your beloved plant, and in your enjoyment of its beauty and effect its improved health, vibrancy.
