Bonsai Repotting for Beginners in Gretna
For every tree that is bonsai, eventually comes a time when its root system has taken all the space in the pot, limiting further development required to support the growing plant. An operation of root pruning and bonsai repotting should be carried out, to deal with this dilemma. It will reorganize the root system and enable the tree to grow healthy and vigorously for many years. Tricks in the next post will give you an overview about how to do bonsai repotting by yourself.
First, you must check whether it is already the time for bonsai repotting. This needs to be done every year during early springtime, when the tree remains in dormancy. Gently ease the tree from its pot and analyze the rootball. It's already the time for bonsai repotting to be carried out if you see long roots encircling the inner side of the pot or the rootball.
Prepare a fresh pot, when the tree will be put, or clean the old one. Cover the drainage holes using a plastic net, fastening it using a bit of wire. Then put a layer of grit on the bottom of the pot, to permit emptying, and after that on top of it a layer of ground, where the tree will likely be planted.

Another step in the bonsai repotting process is to displace the old soil from your rootball, rather using chopsticks when the pot is ready. Prune the longest roots with a sharp pair of scissors or shears. Also search for almost any roots that are decaying, dead, wounded or infected, and remove them too to refrain from dispersing root rot. Aim to remove up to 1/3 of general mass. that is root
Finally 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 forthcoming weeks, when its roots aren't yet fully regenerated. Fill the remaining portion of the pot with fresh soil, ensuring that there are no air pockets. Water the compost thoroughly, to help it settle.
The tree will now need about six weeks for regeneration with the bonsai repotting operation entire. After that, its root system is likely to have the ability to develop freely, growing fine feeder roots in a more compact rootball, than what could be achieved with unpruned roots. This will translate into more essential nutrients feeding your beloved plant, and in effect its improved health, vibrancy along with your enjoyment of its beauty.
