Bonsai Repotting for Beginners in Notre-Dame-de-la-Paix
For each bonsai tree, 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 root pruning and bonsai repotting should be performed, to address this dilemma. It is going to reorganize the root system and permit the tree to grow vigorously and healthy for many years. Tips in the following article will give you an overview on how to perform bonsai repotting by yourself.
First, you should test whether it is already the time for bonsai repotting. When the tree continues to be in dormancy, this has to be done annually during early springtime. Gradually ease the tree from its pot and analyze the rootball. It is already the time for bonsai repotting to be carried out should you see long roots encircling the inner side of the pot or the rootball.
Prepare a fresh pot, where the tree will be put, or clean the old one. Cover the drainage holes using a plastic net, securing it with a piece of wire. Then place a layer of grit on the bottom of the pot, then, and to enable emptying of earth, on which the tree will soon be planted a layer on top of it.

The next part of the bonsai repotting process would be to displace the old earth from your rootball, rather using chopsticks, when the pot is ready. Then prune the longest roots with a sharp pair of shears or scissors. Also search for just about any wounded, dead, decaying or infected roots, and remove them too to refrain from dispersing 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 make sure that it will not be rocked by wind in the coming weeks, when its roots aren't yet fully regenerated. Fill the remaining portion 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 whole. After that, its root system will likely have the ability to develop 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 precious plant, and in effect its improved health, vibrancy and your enjoyment of its own attractiveness.
