Bonsai Repotting for Beginners in Val-des-Bois
For each bonsai tree, eventually comes a time when its root system has taken all the space in the pot, restricting additional development necessary to support the growing plant. A process of bonsai repotting and root pruning must be performed, to deal with this issue. It allow the tree to grow healthy and vigorously for a long time and will reorganize the root system. Tricks in the next post provides you with an overview how to perform bonsai repotting by yourself.
First, you must test whether it's already the time for repotting that is bonsai. When the tree continues to be in dormancy, this needs to be done each year during early spring. Gradually ease the tree out of its own pot and analyze the rootball. Should you see long roots encircling the inner side of the pot or the rootball, it is already the time for bonsai repotting to be carried out.
Prepare a fresh pot, in which the tree will be put, or clean the old one. Cover the drainage holes using a plastic mesh, fastening it with a part of wire. Then place a layer of grit on the base of the pot, to enable emptying, and then on top of it a layer of soil, on which the tree will be put.

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. Then prune the longest roots using a sharp pair of scissors or shears. Also look for almost any rotting, dead, injured or infected roots, and remove them too to avoid spreading root rot. Aim to remove up to 1/3 of general mass. that is root
Eventually set the tree inside the pot that is prepared and tie it with the wire that is anchorage, to be sure that it won't be rocked by wind in the forthcoming weeks, when its roots aren't yet completely regenerated. Fill the remaining portion of the pot with fresh soil, ensuring there are no air pockets. Water the compost completely, to help it settle.
With the bonsai repotting operation complete, the tree will now need about six weeks for regeneration. After that, its root system will undoubtedly be able to grow growing fine feeder roots in a denser rootball, than what could be achieved with roots that are unpruned. This can translate into more essential nutrients feeding your plant that is beloved, and in effect its improved health, vibrancy and your enjoyment of its beauty.
