Bonsai Re-potting for Beginners in Cosmos
For every tree that is bonsai, eventually comes a time when its root system has taken all the space in the pot, limiting further development required to support the growing plant. An operation of bonsai repotting and root pruning must be completed to deal with this problem. It is going to reorganize the root system and allow the tree to grow healthy and vigorously for several years. Hints in the following post will provide you with an overview on the best way to do bonsai repotting by yourself.
First, you need to check on whether it's already the time for bonsai repotting. This needs to be done every year during early spring, when the tree is still in dormancy. 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 is already the time for bonsai repotting to be carried out.
Prepare a new pot, where the tree will be planted, or clean the old one. Cover with a plastic net, fixing it with a bit of wire. Then place a layer of grit on the underside of the pot, of ground, on which the tree will soon be put a layer on top of it, and after that to enable draining.

The following part of the bonsai repotting process would be to displace the old soil from your rootball, preferably using chopsticks, when the pot is prepared. Then prune the longest roots with a sharp pair of scissors or shears. Also look for any infected, dead, injured or decaying roots, and remove them too to avoid distributing root rot. Plan to remove up to 1/3 of general mass. that is root
Finally place the tree inside the pot that is prepared and tie it with the wire that is anchorage, to ensure that it won't be rocked by wind in the coming weeks, when its roots are not yet fully regenerated. Fill the rest of the pot with fresh soil, ensuring 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 whole. After that, its root system will likely be able to grow freely, growing fine feeder roots in a denser rootball, than what could be performed with roots that are unpruned. This will translate into more essential nutrients feeding your precious plant, and in your enjoyment of its own attractiveness and effect its improved health, vibrancy.
