For every bonsai tree, eventually comes a time when its root system has taken all the space in the pot, restricting additional development needed to support the plant that is growing. To address this dilemma, an operation of root pruning and bonsai repotting must be completed. It permit the tree to grow healthy and vigorously for a long time and will reorganize the root system. Hints in the following article will provide you with an overview how to perform bonsai repotting by yourself.

Should you see long roots encircling the rootball or the inner side of the pot, it's already the time for bonsai repotting to be executed.
Prepare a new pot, where the tree will soon be put, or clean the old one. Cover the drainage holes with a plastic mesh, securing it using a bit of wire. Then put a layer of grit on the bottom of the pot, of soil, on which the tree will be planted a layer on top of it, and then to permit emptying.

Another part of the bonsai repotting process will be to displace the old earth from your rootball, preferably using chopsticks when the pot is ready. Then prune the longest roots with a sharp pair of shears or scissors. Also search for any decaying, dead, injured or infected roots, and remove them too to avoid dispersing root rot. Plan to remove up to 1/3 of general mass. that is root
Finally place the tree in the prepared pot and tie it with the anchorage wire, to ensure that wind won't rocks it in the forthcoming weeks, when its roots aren't yet completely regenerated. Fill the rest of the 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 is likely to be able to grow growing fine feeder roots in a denser rootball, than what might be performed with unpruned roots. This will definitely translate into more essential nutrients feeding your precious plant, and in your enjoyment of its own beauty along with effect its improved health, vibrancy.
