Bonsai Repotting for Beginners in Adelphi

For each 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. An operation of root pruning and bonsai repotting must be completed to address this dilemma. It's going to reorganize the root system and allow the tree to grow healthy and vigorously for many years. Tricks in the next article will provide you with an overview on how best to do bonsai repotting by yourself.

First, you need to check on whether it is already the time for bonsai repotting. When the tree remains in dormancy, this needs to be done annually during early spring. Gradually ease the tree from its own pot and analyze the rootball. It is already the time for bonsai repotting to be executed, should you see long roots encircling the interior side of the pot or the rootball.
Prepare a brand new pot, in which the tree will likely be put, or clean the old one. Cover using a plastic mesh, fastening it using a bit of wire. Then place a layer of grit on the underside of the pot, on top of it a layer of earth, on which the tree will likely be planted, and then to enable emptying.

Another step in the bonsai repotting process would be to displace the old ground from the rootball, rather using chopsticks, when the pot is ready. Then prune the longest roots using a sharp pair of shears or scissors. Also search for just about any infected, dead, wounded or rotting roots, and remove them too to refrain from distributing root rot. Aim to remove up to 1/3 of general root mass.

Finally put the tree in the prepared pot and tie it with the anchorage wire, to make sure that it won't be rocked by wind in the forthcoming weeks, when its roots aren't yet fully regenerated. Fill the rest of the pot with fresh soil, ensuring there are no air pockets. Water the compost completely, to help it settle.

The tree will now need about six weeks for regeneration with the bonsai repotting operation complete. After that, its root system will have the ability to grow freely, growing fine feeder roots in a denser rootball, than what could be achieved with roots that are unpruned. This will definitely translate into more essential nutrients feeding your plant that is precious, and in your enjoyment of its attractiveness as well as effect its improved health, vibrancy.
