Bonsai Re-potting for Beginners in Mount Washington
For each tree that is bonsai, eventually comes a time when its root system has taken all the space in the pot, limiting additional development required to support the growing plant. To deal with this issue, a process of bonsai repotting and root pruning should be performed. It will reorganize the root system and enable the tree to grow healthy and vigorously for a long time. Suggestions in the following article provides you with an overview how to perform bonsai repotting by yourself.
First, you should test whether it's already the time for bonsai repotting. When the tree is still in dormancy, this needs to be done annually during early springtime. Gradually ease the tree out of its pot and examine the rootball. Should you see long roots encircling the interior side of the pot or the rootball, it's already the time for bonsai repotting to be executed.
Prepare a new pot, when the tree will be planted, or clean the old one. Cover the drainage holes using a plastic net, fastening it using a piece of wire. Then put a layer of grit on the underside of the pot, of soil, where the tree will likely be put a layer on top of it, after which to enable emptying.

Another step in the bonsai repotting procedure is to displace the old ground in the rootball, rather using chopsticks, when the pot is prepared. Then prune the longest roots using a sharp pair of shears or scissors. Also look for any roots that are dead, rotting, injured or infected, and remove them too to avoid distributing root rot. Aim to remove up to 1/3 of general mass. that is root
Finally set the tree inside the pot that is prepared and tie it with the wire that is anchorage, to be sure that it will not be rocked by wind in the forthcoming weeks, when its roots are not yet completely regenerated. Fill the remaining pot with fresh soil, ensuring there are no air pockets. Water the compost completely, to help it settle.
With the bonsai repotting operation complete, the tree will need about six weeks for regeneration. After that, its root system will likely be able to grow growing fine feeder roots in a more compact rootball, than what could be achieved with unpruned roots. This will translate into more essential nutrients feeding your cherished plant, and in your enjoyment of its attractiveness along with effect its improved health, vibrancy.
