Bonsai Re-potting for Beginners in Valencia
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. A process of root pruning and bonsai repotting must be completed, to deal with this dilemma. It enable the tree to grow vigorously and healthy for several years and will reorganize the root system. Tips in the next post will give you an overview how to do bonsai repotting by yourself.
First, you should test whether it is already the time for bonsai repotting. When the tree is still in dormancy, this must be done each year during early springtime. Gently ease the tree out of its own pot and examine the rootball. It's already the time for bonsai repotting to be implemented in case you see long roots encircling the inner side of the pot or the rootball.
Prepare a new pot, in which the tree will likely be planted, or clean the old one. Cover with a plastic net, fastening it with a part of wire. Then put a layer of grit on the underside of the pot, then, and to allow draining on top of it a layer of earth, on which the tree will likely be put.

Another part of the bonsai repotting process would be to displace the old soil from your rootball, rather using chopsticks when the pot is ready. Prune the longest roots using a sharp pair of scissors or shears. Also search for just about any infected, dead, wounded or rotting roots, and remove them too to avoid spreading root rot. Plan to remove up to 1/3 of general root mass.
Eventually put the tree inside the prepared pot and tie it with the wire that is anchorage, to make certain that it won't be rocked by wind in the coming weeks, when its roots are not yet fully regenerated. Fill the remainder 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 complete. After that, its root system will be able to grow freely, growing fine feeder roots in a denser rootball, than what could be achieved with roots that are unpruned. This will definitely translate into more essential nutrients feeding your plant that is cherished, and in your enjoyment of its own attractiveness and effect its improved health, vibrancy.
