Bonsai Re-potting for Beginners in Fall River
For every tree that is bonsai, eventually comes a time when its root system has taken all the space in the pot, restricting additional development needed to support the growing plant. An operation of bonsai repotting and root pruning should be carried out, to address this issue. It allow the tree to grow healthy and vigorously for several years and will reorganize the root system. Tips in the following article provides you with an overview how to perform bonsai repotting by yourself.
First, you need to test whether it's already the time for bonsai repotting. This must be done every year during early spring, when the tree continues to be in dormancy. Gradually ease the tree out of its own pot and analyze the rootball. In case you see long roots encircling the rootball or the inner side of the pot, it's already the time for bonsai repotting to be carried out.
Prepare a brand new pot, in which the tree will be planted, or clean the old one. Cover the drainage holes with a plastic mesh, securing it using a piece of wire. Then put a layer of grit on the bottom of the pot, of ground, on which the tree will likely be put a layer on top of it, and after that to permit emptying.

The following part of the bonsai repotting process will be to displace the old ground from the rootball, rather using chopsticks, when the pot is prepared. Prune the longest roots using 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. Aim to remove up to 1/3 of general root mass.
Eventually set the tree in the prepared pot and tie it with the wire that is anchorage, to be sure 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 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 will undoubtedly be able to grow growing more fine feeder roots in a more compact rootball, than what could be achieved with roots that are unpruned. This will definitely translate into more essential nutrients feeding your beloved plant, and in effect its improved health, vibrancy along with your enjoyment of its beauty.
