Bonsai Repotting for Beginners in Gladwyne
For every tree that is bonsai, eventually comes a time when its root system has taken all the space in the pot, restraining additional development required to support the plant that is growing. An operation of root pruning and bonsai repotting should be completed to address this dilemma. It's going to reorganize the root system and enable the tree to grow vigorously and healthy for a long time. Suggestions in the next article will give you an overview on the best way to do bonsai repotting by yourself.
First, you need to check on whether it's already the time for bonsai repotting. This must be done annually during early springtime, when the tree remains in dormancy. Gradually ease the tree from its own pot and examine the rootball. It is already the time for bonsai repotting to be implemented if you see long roots encircling the inner side of the pot or the rootball.
Prepare a new pot, in which the tree will soon be put, or clean the old one. Cover using a plastic net, fixing it using a piece of wire. Then put a layer of grit on the base of the pot, then, and to allow emptying on top of it a layer of earth, on which the tree will likely be put.

Another step in the bonsai repotting procedure would be to displace the old ground from the rootball, preferably using chopsticks when the pot is prepared. Then prune the longest roots using a sharp pair of shears or scissors. Also search for just about any roots that are decaying, dead, injured or infected, and remove them too to avoid spreading root rot. Plan to remove up to 1/3 of general root mass.
Finally set the tree inside the prepared pot and tie it with the anchorage wire, to ensure that wind won't rocks it in the coming weeks, when its roots are not yet fully regenerated. Fill the remainder of the pot with fresh soil, ensuring 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 will have the ability to develop freely, growing fine feeder roots in a more compact rootball, than what might be achieved with unpruned roots. This will translate into more essential nutrients feeding your precious plant, and in effect its improved health, vibrancy along with your enjoyment of its own beauty.
