Bonsai Re-potting for Beginners in Burlington
For each tree that is bonsai, eventually comes a time when its root system has taken all the space in the pot, restricting additional development required to support the plant that is growing. To address this problem, a process of root pruning and bonsai repotting must be carried out. The root system will be reorganized by it and allow the tree to grow vigorously and healthy for many years. Tricks in the next post provides you with an overview on how to perform bonsai repotting by yourself.
First, you need to test whether it is already the time for bonsai repotting. This has to be done annually during early spring, when the tree continues to be in dormancy. Gently ease the tree out of its pot and analyze the rootball. If you see long roots encircling the rootball or the interior side of the pot, it's already the time for bonsai repotting to be carried out.
Prepare a new pot, when the tree will probably be put, or clean the old one. Cover using a plastic net, fastening it with a piece of wire. Then place a layer of grit on the bottom of the pot, then, and to allow emptying of ground, on which the tree will be planted a layer on top of it.

The following part of the bonsai repotting process will be to displace the old earth from the rootball, preferably using chopsticks, when the pot is prepared. Then prune the longest roots with a sharp pair of shears or scissors. Also look for any infected, dead, injured or rotting roots, and remove them too to refrain from distributing root rot. Aim to remove up to 1/3 of general root mass.
Eventually put the tree in the pot that is prepared and tie it with the anchorage wire, to make certain that it won't be rocked by wind in the forthcoming weeks, when its roots aren't yet fully regenerated. Fill the remaining portion of the pot with fresh soil, ensuring there are no air pockets. Water the compost thoroughly, 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 probably be able to develop freely, growing more fine feeder roots in a more compact rootball, than what could be achieved with roots that are unpruned. This will translate into more essential nutrients feeding your beloved plant, and in effect its improved health, vibrancy as well as your enjoyment of its own beauty.
