Bonsai Re-potting for Beginners in Wauconda

For every bonsai tree, eventually comes a time when its root system has taken all the space in the pot, limiting further development needed to support the growing plant. A process of root pruning and bonsai repotting must be completed, to deal with this problem. It'll reorganize the root system and allow the tree to grow healthy and vigorously for many years. Tips in the next article provides you with an overview how to do bonsai repotting by yourself.

First, you should check whether it is already the time for bonsai repotting. This has to be done each year during early spring, when the tree continues to be in dormancy. Gently ease the tree out of its own pot and analyze the rootball. If you see long roots encircling the rootball or the inner side of the pot, it is already the time for bonsai repotting to be carried out.
Prepare a brand new pot, where the tree will likely be put, 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, on top of it a layer of earth, where the tree will likely be put, and then to permit emptying.

When the pot is ready, the following part of the bonsai repotting process will be to displace the old earth from the rootball, rather using chopsticks. Then prune the longest roots using a sharp pair of scissors or shears. Also look for almost any roots that are dead, rotting, wounded or infected, and remove them too to avoid dispersing root rot. Aim to remove up to 1/3 of general root mass.

Finally put the tree in the prepared pot and tie it with the anchorage wire, to make certain that it won't be rocked by wind in the forthcoming weeks, when its roots aren't yet fully regenerated. Fill the remainder of the pot with fresh soil, ensuring that there are no air pockets. Water the compost thoroughly, to help it settle.

The tree will now need about six weeks for regeneration with the bonsai repotting operation entire. After that, its root system will undoubtedly have the ability to grow freely, growing fine feeder roots in a more compact rootball, than what could be achieved with unpruned roots. 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.
