Strategies For Growing Bonsai trees in Batavia, Illinois

Bonsai Repotting for Beginners in Batavia

For every tree that is bonsai, eventually comes a time when its root system has taken all the space in the pot, restricting further development necessary to support the growing plant. An operation of root pruning and bonsai repotting should be performed, to deal with this problem. It is going to reorganize the root system and allow the tree to grow healthy and vigorously for several years. Tips in the next post will provide you with an overview how to do bonsai repotting by yourself.

First, you must test whether it is already the time for bonsai repotting. When the tree remains in dormancy, this needs to be done annually during early spring. Gently ease the tree out of its own pot and analyze 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, fastening it with a piece of wire. Then place a layer of grit on the base of the pot, of soil, on which the tree will be put a layer on top of it, and after that to enable emptying.

When the pot is ready, another step in the bonsai repotting process is to displace the old land from the rootball, preferably using chopsticks. Then prune the longest roots using a sharp pair of shears or scissors. Also search for almost any roots that are decaying, dead, injured or infected, and remove them too to refrain from spreading root rot. Aim to remove up to 1/3 of general root mass.

Finally set the tree inside the prepared pot and tie it with the wire that is anchorage, to be sure that it will not be rocked by wind in the coming weeks, when its roots are not yet fully regenerated. Fill the remaining pot with fresh soil, ensuring there are no air pockets. Water the compost thoroughly, to help it settle.

With the bonsai repotting operation entire, the tree will now need about six weeks for regeneration. After that, its root system is going to be able to develop growing fine feeder roots in a denser rootball, than what could be achieved with roots that are unpruned. This will translate into more essential nutrients feeding your plant that is cherished, and in effect its improved health, vibrancy and your enjoyment of its own beauty.
