Bonsai Re-potting for Beginners in Alberta
For each bonsai tree, eventually comes a time when its root system has taken all the space in the pot, restricting further development necessary to support the plant that is growing. To deal with this problem, an operation of bonsai repotting and root pruning must be performed. The root system will be reorganized by it and permit the tree to grow vigorously and healthy for several years. Suggestions in the next post provides you with an overview on the best way to do bonsai repotting by yourself.
First, you should check whether it's already the time for repotting that is bonsai. This must be done every year during early spring, when the tree is still in dormancy. Gently ease the tree out of its pot and analyze the rootball. If you see long roots encircling the rootball or the interior side of the pot, it's already the time for bonsai repotting to be implemented.
Prepare a new pot, when the tree will likely be planted, or clean the old one. Cover using a plastic mesh, securing it with a part of wire. Then put a layer of grit on the base of the pot, then, and to enable emptying of soil, where the tree will likely be planted a layer on top of it.

When the pot is prepared, the next step in the bonsai repotting process will be to displace the old ground in the rootball, rather using chopsticks. Then prune the longest roots using a sharp pair of scissors or shears. Also search for just about any roots that are decaying, dead, injured or infected, and remove them too to avoid distributing root rot. Plan to remove up to 1/3 of general root mass.
Finally put the tree inside the prepared pot and tie it with the anchorage wire, to make sure that wind won't rocks it in the coming 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 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 undoubtedly be able to grow freely, growing fine feeder roots in a denser rootball, than what could be achieved with roots that are unpruned. This will definitely translate into more essential nutrients feeding your plant that is beloved, and in effect its improved health, vibrancy as well as your enjoyment of its attractiveness.
