Bonsai Re-potting for Beginners in Gu Achi
For each bonsai tree, eventually comes a time when its root system has taken all the space in the pot, restraining additional development needed to support the plant that is growing. To deal with this dilemma, a process of root pruning and bonsai repotting should be performed. It is going to reorganize the root system and enable the tree to grow vigorously and healthy for several years. Tricks in the following post will give you an overview on how best to do bonsai repotting by yourself.
First, you should check on whether it is already the time for bonsai repotting. When the tree remains in dormancy, this has to be done annually during early springtime. Gently ease the tree from its own pot and analyze the rootball. In case you see long roots encircling the inner side of the pot or the rootball, it's already the time for bonsai repotting to be executed.
Prepare a brand new pot, when the tree will be planted, or clean the old one. Cover the drainage holes using a plastic mesh, securing it using a part of wire. Then place a layer of grit on the underside of the pot, then, and to permit draining of earth, where the tree will be planted a layer on top of it.

The following part of the bonsai repotting process will be to displace the old earth from the rootball, preferably using chopsticks, when the pot is prepared. Then prune the longest roots with a sharp pair of shears or scissors. Also look for just about any wounded, dead, decaying or infected roots, and remove them too to refrain from dispersing root rot. Plan to remove up to 1/3 of general root mass.
Eventually place the tree inside the prepared pot and tie it with the anchorage wire, to ensure that it will not be rocked by wind in the forthcoming 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 thoroughly, 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 probably be able to develop freely, growing fine feeder roots in a denser rootball, than what might be achieved with unpruned roots. This will definitely translate into more essential nutrients feeding your cherished plant, and in effect its improved health, vibrancy as well as your enjoyment of its own beauty.
