Bonsai Re-potting for Beginners in Berwyn
For every bonsai tree, eventually comes a time when its root system has taken all the space in the pot, limiting additional development needed to support the plant that is growing. To address this dilemma, an operation of bonsai repotting and root pruning must be carried out. It enable the tree to grow healthy and vigorously for several years and will reorganize the root system. Tricks in the next post will provide you with an overview on how best to perform bonsai repotting by yourself.
First, you need to check whether it is already the time for bonsai repotting. This has to be done annually during early spring, when the tree continues to be in dormancy. Gently ease the tree from its 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 new pot, in which the tree will probably be put, or clean the old one. Cover with a plastic mesh, securing it using a bit of wire. Then place a layer of grit on the base of the pot, then, and to permit draining of soil, where the tree will soon be planted a layer on top of it.

Another step in the bonsai repotting procedure will be to displace the old soil in the 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 almost any roots that are decaying, dead, injured or infected, and remove them too to refrain from distributing root rot. Plan 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 make sure that it won't be rocked by wind in the coming weeks, when its roots are not yet completely regenerated. Fill the remaining portion 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 complete. After that, its root system is going to be able to grow freely, growing fine feeder roots in a more compact 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 your enjoyment of its own attractiveness and effect its improved health, vibrancy.
