Bonsai Re-potting for Beginners in Annandale


For each bonsai tree, eventually comes a time when its root system has taken all the space in the pot, restricting further development required to support the growing plant. To address this problem, an operation of root pruning and bonsai repotting should be performed. It's going to reorganize the root system and allow the tree to grow healthy and vigorously for several years. Suggestions in the following post provides you with an overview about how to perform bonsai repotting by yourself.

First, you should test 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 spring. Gradually ease the tree from its pot and analyze the rootball. It's 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 new pot, where the tree will probably be planted, or clean the old one. Cover using a plastic net, securing it with a part of wire. Then put a layer of grit on the base of the pot, to allow draining, and then on top of it a layer of earth, where the tree will probably be planted.

The following part of the bonsai repotting process would be to displace the old soil from the rootball, preferably using chopsticks, when the pot is ready. Prune the longest roots with a sharp pair of scissors or shears. Also search for just about any roots that are decaying, dead, wounded or infected, 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 inside the pot that is prepared and tie it with the wire that is anchorage, to be sure that it won't be rocked by wind in the forthcoming weeks, when its roots are not yet fully regenerated. Fill the remaining portion of the pot with fresh soil, ensuring there are no air pockets. Water the compost completely, to help it settle.

With the bonsai repotting operation complete, the tree will need about six weeks for regeneration. After that, its root system will probably be able to develop growing fine feeder roots in a denser rootball, than what might be performed with roots that are unpruned. This will translate into more essential nutrients feeding your beloved plant, and in your enjoyment of its own beauty and effect its improved health, vibrancy.
