Bonsai Re-potting for Beginners in Ossipee
For each tree that is bonsai, eventually comes a time when its root system has taken all the space in the pot, restricting further development needed to support the plant that is growing. To address this problem, an operation of bonsai repotting and root pruning should be performed. It allow the tree to grow healthy and vigorously for many years and will reorganize the root system. Suggestions in the next post provides you with an overview on how best to do bonsai repotting by yourself.
First, you have to 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. Gradually ease the tree from its own pot and analyze the rootball. It's already the time for bonsai repotting to be carried out should you see long roots encircling the inner side of the pot or the rootball.
Prepare a new pot, where the tree will be planted, or clean the old one. Cover the drainage holes with a plastic mesh, fastening it using a part of wire. Then place a layer of grit on the base of the pot, of ground, where the tree will soon be put a layer on top of it, and after that to permit emptying.

The following step in the bonsai repotting procedure is to displace the old soil from the rootball, rather using chopsticks when the pot is ready. Prune the longest roots using a sharp pair of scissors or shears. Also search for almost any roots that are dead, rotting, injured or infected, and remove them too to avoid dispersing root rot. Plan to remove up to 1/3 of general root mass.
Finally put the tree in the prepared pot 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 aren't yet completely regenerated. Fill the remainder of the pot with fresh soil, ensuring that 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 likely be able to grow freely, growing fine feeder roots in a denser rootball, than what might be achieved with roots that are unpruned. This will definitely translate into more essential nutrients feeding your precious plant, and in your enjoyment of its beauty and effect its improved health, vibrancy.
