Bonsai Repotting for Beginners in Wheatland
For every bonsai tree, eventually comes a time when its root system has taken all the space in the pot, restricting additional development necessary to support the plant that is growing. An operation of root pruning and bonsai repotting must be performed to address this dilemma. It permit the tree to grow healthy and vigorously for many years and will reorganize the root system. Tricks in the following article provides you with an overview about how to perform bonsai repotting by yourself.
First, you should test whether it is already the time for bonsai repotting. This needs to be done annually during early springtime, when the tree is still in dormancy. Gradually ease the tree out of its pot and examine the rootball. It is already the time for bonsai repotting to be executed, if you see long roots encircling the inner side of the pot or the rootball.
Prepare a fresh pot, when the tree will probably be planted, or clean the old one. Cover with a plastic net, securing it using a piece of wire. Then put a layer of grit on the underside of the pot, to allow emptying, and after that on top of it a layer of earth, on which the tree will be planted.

When the pot is prepared, the next step in the bonsai repotting procedure will be to displace the old soil from the rootball, rather using chopsticks. Then prune the longest roots using a sharp pair of shears or scissors. Also look for any roots that are rotting, dead, wounded or infected, and remove them too to avoid distributing root rot. Aim to remove up to 1/3 of general root mass.
Eventually place the tree inside the pot that is prepared and tie it with the wire that is anchorage, to be sure that it will not be rocked by wind in the coming weeks, when its roots are not yet fully regenerated. Fill the remainder of the pot with fresh soil, ensuring that there are no air pockets. Water the compost thoroughly, to help it settle.
With the bonsai repotting operation complete, the tree will need about six weeks for regeneration. After that, its root system is likely to be able to develop growing fine feeder roots in a denser rootball, than what could be achieved with roots that are unpruned. This can 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.
