Bonsai Repotting for Beginners in Ovid
For every 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. An operation of bonsai repotting and root pruning should be carried out, to deal with this problem. It's going to reorganize the root system and allow the tree to grow healthy and vigorously for several years. Hints in the next post will provide you with an overview on how best to do bonsai repotting by yourself.
First, you have to test whether it's already the time for repotting that is bonsai. When the tree is still in dormancy, this must be done annually during early spring. Gradually ease the tree from its pot and analyze the rootball. If you see long roots encircling the interior side of the pot or the rootball, it's already the time for bonsai repotting to be implemented.
Prepare a brand new pot, where the tree will soon be put, or clean the old one. Cover using a plastic net, fastening it with a bit of wire. Then place a layer of grit on the bottom of the pot, then, and to allow emptying on top of it a layer of earth, where the tree will soon be planted.

The following step in the bonsai repotting process is to displace the old soil in the rootball, preferably using chopsticks, when the pot is prepared. Then prune the longest roots with a sharp pair of scissors or shears. Also search for almost any roots that are decaying, dead, injured or infected, and remove them too to refrain from spreading root rot. Plan to remove up to 1/3 of general root mass.
Finally set the tree inside the prepared pot and tie it with the anchorage wire, to make certain that it will not be rocked by wind in the forthcoming 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 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 is likely to have the ability to grow freely, growing more fine feeder roots in a more compact rootball, than what might be achieved with unpruned roots. This will definitely translate into more essential nutrients feeding your beloved plant, and in your enjoyment of its own attractiveness and effect its improved health, vibrancy.
