Bonsai Re-potting for Beginners in Salluit
For every tree that is bonsai, eventually comes a time when its root system has taken all the space in the pot, restraining additional development required to support the plant that is growing. To address this issue, a process of bonsai repotting and root pruning must be performed. The root system will be reorganized by it and enable the tree to grow vigorously and healthy for several years. Tips in the next post provides you with an overview on how best to perform bonsai repotting by yourself.
First, you need to test whether it is already the time for bonsai repotting. This needs to be done each year during early spring, when the tree remains in dormancy. Gradually ease the tree out of its pot and analyze the rootball. In case you see long roots encircling the rootball or the inner side of the pot, it's already the time for bonsai repotting to be implemented.
Prepare a fresh pot, when the tree will soon be planted, or clean the old one. Cover using a plastic mesh, fixing it using a part of wire. Then place a layer of grit on the underside of the pot, of earth, where the tree will soon be put a layer on top of it, and then to permit emptying.

When the pot is prepared, the following part of the bonsai repotting procedure will be to displace the old land in the rootball, preferably using chopsticks. Then prune the longest roots with a sharp pair of shears or scissors. Also search for almost any roots that are dead, decaying, injured or infected, and remove them too to avoid dispersing root rot. Aim to remove up to 1/3 of general mass. that is root
Finally set 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 coming weeks, when its roots aren't yet completely regenerated. Fill the remainder of the pot with fresh soil, ensuring there are no air pockets. Water the compost completely, to help it settle.
The tree will need about six weeks for regeneration with the bonsai repotting operation complete. After that, its root system will have the ability to grow freely, growing 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 plant that is cherished, and in effect its improved health, vibrancy along with your enjoyment of its beauty.
