Bonsai Re-potting for Beginners in Wood Dale
For every bonsai tree, eventually comes a time when its root system has taken all the space in the pot, limiting further development required to support the growing plant. A process of root pruning and bonsai repotting must be carried out, to deal with this problem. It allow the tree to grow healthy and vigorously for several years and will reorganize the root system. Tips in the following 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 must be done annually during early spring. Gently ease the tree out of its pot and examine the rootball. Should you see long roots encircling the inner side of the pot or the rootball, it's already the time for bonsai repotting to be carried out.
Prepare a fresh pot, in which the tree will soon be planted, or clean the old one. Cover with a plastic net, fixing it with a piece of wire. Then put a layer of grit on the underside of the pot, on top of it a layer of soil, on which the tree will probably be put, and then to allow draining.

Another part of the bonsai repotting process would be to displace the old land from your rootball, rather using chopsticks when the pot is ready. Then prune the longest roots with a sharp pair of shears or scissors. Also look for any infected, dead, wounded or decaying roots, and remove them too to avoid spreading 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 anchorage wire, to ensure that it will not be rocked by wind in the forthcoming weeks, when its roots aren't yet fully regenerated. Fill the rest of the pot with fresh soil, ensuring there are no air pockets. Water the compost thoroughly, to help it settle.
The tree will need about six weeks for regeneration, with the bonsai repotting operation whole. After that, its root system will probably be able to grow growing more fine feeder roots in a denser rootball, than what could be performed with roots that are unpruned. This will translate into more essential nutrients feeding your beloved plant, and in your enjoyment of its attractiveness as well as effect its improved health, vibrancy.
