Bonsai Re-potting for Beginners in Campo

For every tree that is bonsai, eventually comes a time when its root system has taken all the space in the pot, restricting further development needed to support the growing plant. To deal with this issue, an operation of bonsai repotting and root pruning must be performed. It enable the tree to grow healthy and vigorously for several years and will reorganize the root system. Tricks in the following article will provide you with an overview about how to do bonsai repotting by yourself.

First, you need to check whether it is already the time for bonsai repotting. When the tree remains in dormancy, this needs to be done every year during early springtime. Gently 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 carried out.
Prepare a fresh pot, where the tree will likely be planted, or clean the old one. Cover the drainage holes with a plastic mesh, fixing it with a part of wire. Then put a layer of grit on the bottom of the pot, on top of it a layer of earth, on which the tree will likely be put, and then to enable emptying.

When the pot is ready, another part of the bonsai repotting procedure will be to displace the old ground in the rootball, preferably using chopsticks. Then prune the longest roots with a sharp pair of shears or scissors. Also search for just about any injured, dead, rotting or infected roots, and remove them too to refrain from distributing root rot. Plan to remove up to 1/3 of general root mass.

Eventually place the tree in the prepared pot and tie it with the wire that is anchorage, to ensure that it will not be rocked by wind in the coming weeks, when its roots aren't yet completely regenerated. Fill the remaining portion 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 probably be able to grow freely, growing fine feeder roots in a denser rootball, than what could be performed with unpruned roots. This can translate into more essential nutrients feeding your cherished plant, and in effect its improved health, vibrancy and your enjoyment of its own beauty.
