Bonsai Re-potting for Beginners in Vallecito
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 necessary to support the plant that is growing. A process of root pruning and bonsai repotting should be completed to deal with this issue. It allow the tree to grow healthy and vigorously for a long time and will reorganize the root system. Suggestions in the following post will provide you with an overview how to perform bonsai repotting by yourself.
First, you must check on whether it's already the time for repotting that is bonsai. When the tree continues to be in dormancy, this must be done each year during early spring. Gently ease the tree out of its own pot and analyze the rootball. It is already the time for bonsai repotting to be implemented, should you see long roots encircling the inner side of the pot or the rootball.
Prepare a fresh pot, where the tree will soon be put, or clean the old one. Cover the drainage holes using a plastic mesh, fixing it using a part of wire. Then put a layer of grit on the underside of the pot, on top of it a layer of soil, on which the tree will soon be put, and then to allow emptying.

The next step in the bonsai repotting procedure is to displace the old earth from the rootball, rather using chopsticks when the pot is prepared. Prune the longest roots with a sharp pair of scissors or shears. Also search for almost any roots that are dead, rotting, wounded or infected, and remove them too to avoid distributing root rot. Plan to remove up to 1/3 of general root mass.
Finally place the tree inside the pot that is prepared and tie it with the anchorage wire, to make sure that wind won't rocks it 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 need about six weeks for regeneration with the bonsai repotting operation whole. After that, its root system is going to be able to develop freely, growing more fine feeder roots in a denser rootball, than what might be achieved with unpruned roots. This can translate into more essential nutrients feeding your precious plant, and in effect its improved health, vibrancy along with your enjoyment of its own beauty.
