Bonsai Re-potting for Beginners in Ingraham
For each tree that is bonsai, eventually comes a time when its root system has taken all the space in the pot, restraining additional development necessary to support the plant that is growing. To address this issue, an operation of bonsai repotting and root pruning must be performed. It's going to reorganize the root system and permit the tree to grow healthy and vigorously for a long time. Suggestions in the next article will provide you with an overview on how best to perform bonsai repotting by yourself.
First, you should check on whether it's already the time for bonsai repotting. When the tree continues to be in dormancy, this needs to be done every year during early spring. Gradually ease the tree from its pot and examine 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, when the tree will soon be planted, or clean the old one. Cover the drainage holes with a plastic mesh, fixing it using a part of wire. Then put a layer of grit on the base of the pot, then, and to allow emptying on top of it a layer of ground, on which the tree will be planted.

Another step in the bonsai repotting procedure will be to displace the old ground in the rootball, rather using chopsticks when the pot is ready. Then prune the longest roots with a sharp pair of scissors or shears. Also look for almost any roots that are rotting, dead, injured or infected, and remove them too to refrain from dispersing root rot. Plan to remove up to 1/3 of general mass. that is root
Finally set the tree inside the pot that is prepared and tie it with the anchorage wire, to ensure that wind won't rocks it in the coming weeks, when its roots aren't yet fully regenerated. Fill the remainder of the pot with fresh soil, ensuring that there are no air pockets. Water the compost thoroughly, 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 undoubtedly be able to develop growing fine feeder roots in a denser rootball, than what might be achieved with unpruned roots. This can translate into more essential nutrients feeding your beloved plant, and in effect its improved health, vibrancy as well as your enjoyment of its own attractiveness.
