Bonsai Repotting for Beginners in Potwin
For each bonsai tree, eventually comes a time when its root system has taken all the space in the pot, restricting additional development necessary to support the growing plant. A process of bonsai repotting and root pruning should be completed, to address this issue. It allow the tree to grow vigorously and healthy for a long time and will reorganize the root system. Hints in the following post will give you an overview on how to do bonsai repotting by yourself.
First, you have to check whether it is already the time for repotting that is bonsai. When the tree is still in dormancy, this needs to be done annually during early springtime. Gently ease the tree out of its own pot and analyze the rootball. Should you see long roots encircling the rootball or the inner side of the pot, it's already the time for bonsai repotting to be executed.
Prepare a brand new pot, when the tree will soon be planted, or clean the old one. Cover the drainage holes using a plastic mesh, securing it using a piece of wire. Then place a layer of grit on the base of the pot, to allow emptying, and after that on top of it a layer of soil, where the tree will be planted.

Another part of the bonsai repotting process would be to displace the old ground from your rootball, rather using chopsticks, when the pot is prepared. Prune the longest roots using a sharp pair of shears or scissors. Also look for just about any dead, rotting, injured or infected roots, and remove them too to refrain from spreading root rot. Aim to remove up to 1/3 of general root mass.
Finally put the tree in the prepared pot and tie it with the anchorage wire, to be sure that wind won't rocks it in the coming weeks, when its roots are not yet completely regenerated. Fill the rest of the pot with fresh soil, ensuring 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 complete. After that, its root system will probably be able to develop growing fine feeder roots in a more compact rootball, than what could be performed with unpruned roots. This will translate into more essential nutrients feeding your plant that is precious, and in effect its improved health, vibrancy and your enjoyment of its own beauty.
