Bonsai Re-potting for Beginners in West Lima
For each bonsai tree, eventually comes a time when its root system has taken all the space in the pot, restraining additional development needed to support the plant that is growing. A process of bonsai repotting and root pruning should be performed to deal with this issue. It permit the tree to grow healthy and vigorously for a long time and will reorganize the root system. Suggestions in the next post will give you an overview on how to do bonsai repotting by yourself.
First, you need to check whether it is already the time for bonsai repotting. This needs to be done every year during early spring, when the tree remains in dormancy. Gradually ease the tree from its pot and examine the rootball. Should you see long roots encircling the interior side of the pot or the rootball, it's already the time for bonsai repotting to be carried out.
Prepare a fresh pot, when the tree will soon be put, or clean the old one. Cover the drainage holes with a plastic net, fixing it with a bit of wire. Then place a layer of grit on the bottom of the pot, on top of it a layer of soil, on which the tree will likely be planted, after which to allow emptying.

Another part of the bonsai repotting process will be to displace the old soil from your rootball, preferably using chopsticks, when the pot is ready. Prune the longest roots using a sharp pair of scissors or shears. Also look for just about any infected, dead, wounded or decaying roots, 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 anchorage wire, to be sure that wind won't rocks it in the coming weeks, when its roots are not yet completely 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 entire. After that, its root system will probably be able to develop freely, growing more 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 plant that is cherished, and in effect its improved health, vibrancy along with your enjoyment of its beauty.
