Bonsai Re-potting for Beginners in Farnam
For every bonsai tree, eventually comes a time when its root system has taken all the space in the pot, limiting further development needed to support the plant that is growing. An operation of root pruning and bonsai repotting must be completed, to deal with this problem. It's going to reorganize the root system and enable the tree to grow vigorously and healthy for a long time. Hints in the next post will provide you with an overview on how to perform bonsai repotting by yourself.
First, you have to test whether it is already the time for repotting that is bonsai. When the tree remains 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 carried out, should you see long roots encircling the interior side of the pot or the rootball.
Prepare a brand new pot, where the tree will be planted, or clean the old one. Cover using a plastic net, fixing it using a bit of wire. Then put a layer of grit on the underside of the pot, then, and to enable draining on top of it a layer of earth, where the tree will be planted.

The next step in the bonsai repotting process is to displace the old soil from the rootball, preferably using chopsticks, when the pot is ready. Then prune the longest roots using a sharp pair of scissors or shears. Also look for any roots that are decaying, dead, wounded or infected, and remove them too to refrain from spreading root rot. Aim to remove up to 1/3 of general root mass.
Eventually set the tree inside the prepared pot and tie it with the anchorage wire, to make sure that it won't be rocked by wind in the coming weeks, when its roots aren't 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 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 more fine feeder roots in a more compact rootball, than what might be performed with roots that are unpruned. This will definitely translate into more essential nutrients feeding your cherished plant, and in your enjoyment of its own attractiveness along with effect its improved health, vibrancy.
