Bonsai Repotting for Beginners in Red Rock
For each tree that is bonsai, eventually comes a time when its root system has taken all the space in the pot, restraining additional development needed to support the growing plant. To address this issue, a process of bonsai repotting and root pruning should be performed. It allow the tree to grow vigorously and healthy for a long time and will reorganize the root system. Hints in the following article will provide you with an overview about how to perform bonsai repotting by yourself.
First, you need to check whether it's already the time for bonsai repotting. This must be done every year during early springtime, when the tree is still in dormancy. Gradually ease the tree from its own pot and analyze the rootball. In case you see long roots encircling the inner side of the pot or the rootball, it is already the time for bonsai repotting to be implemented.
Prepare a fresh pot, in which the tree will probably be planted, or clean the old one. Cover using a plastic net, fastening it with a part of wire. Then place a layer of grit on the base of the pot, to permit emptying, after which on top of it a layer of ground, where the tree will be put.

Another step in the bonsai repotting procedure would be to displace the old ground in the rootball, rather using chopsticks when the pot is ready. Prune the longest roots with a sharp pair of scissors or shears. Also look for any decaying, dead, wounded or infected roots, and remove them too to refrain from spreading root rot. Plan to remove up to 1/3 of general root mass.
Eventually set the tree in the pot that is prepared and tie it with the anchorage wire, to ensure that wind won't rocks it in the forthcoming weeks, when its roots are not yet completely regenerated. Fill the rest of the pot with fresh soil, ensuring that 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 whole. After that, its root system is going to be able to grow growing more fine feeder roots in a denser rootball, than what could be achieved with unpruned roots. This will translate into more essential nutrients feeding your beloved plant, and in effect its improved health, vibrancy along with your enjoyment of its beauty.
