Bonsai Re-potting for Beginners in Montpelier
For every bonsai tree, eventually comes a time when its root system has taken all the space in the pot, restricting further development required to support the plant that is growing. A process of bonsai repotting and root pruning should be carried out, to address this problem. The root system will be reorganized by it and enable the tree to grow vigorously and healthy for many years. Hints in the next post provides you with an overview how to perform bonsai repotting by yourself.
First, you need to check on whether it's already the time for repotting that is bonsai. When the tree remains in dormancy, this has to be done annually during early spring. Gradually ease the tree out of its own pot and analyze the rootball. Should you see long roots encircling the inner side of the pot or the rootball, it's already the time for bonsai repotting to be carried out.
Prepare a new pot, in which the tree will be put, or clean the old one. Cover the drainage holes with a plastic net, securing it with a bit of wire. Then place a layer of grit on the base of the pot, then, and to enable emptying on top of it a layer of ground, where the tree will likely be put.

The following step in the bonsai repotting process would be to displace the old soil in the rootball, preferably using chopsticks when the pot is ready. Then prune the longest roots with a sharp pair of scissors or shears. Also search for any rotting, dead, wounded or infected roots, and remove them too to refrain from dispersing root rot. Aim to remove up to 1/3 of general root mass.
Finally place the tree inside the pot that is prepared and tie it with the wire that is anchorage, to make sure that wind won't rocks it in the forthcoming weeks, when its roots aren't yet fully regenerated. Fill the rest of the pot with fresh soil, ensuring that there are no air pockets. Water the compost completely, to help it settle.
The tree will need about six weeks for regeneration, with the bonsai repotting operation whole. After that, its root system will undoubtedly be able to develop growing fine feeder roots in a denser rootball, than what might be performed with unpruned roots. This will translate into more essential nutrients feeding your beloved plant, and in effect its improved health, vibrancy as well as your enjoyment of its own beauty.
