For each 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 growing plant.

The next part of the bonsai repotting process is to displace the old soil in the rootball, preferably using chopsticks when the pot is ready. Then prune the longest roots using a sharp pair of scissors or shears. Also look for just about any dead, decaying, wounded or infected roots, and remove them too to avoid spreading root rot. Aim to remove up to 1/3 of general root mass.
Finally set the tree in the pot that is prepared 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 fully 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 entire. After that, its root system will undoubtedly have the ability to develop freely, growing fine feeder roots in a more compact rootball, than what might be performed with unpruned roots. This can translate into more essential nutrients feeding your precious plant, and in your enjoyment of its attractiveness along with effect its improved health, vibrancy.
