Bonsai Re-potting for Beginners in Oakman
For each bonsai tree, eventually comes a time when its root system has taken all the space in the pot, restraining further development required to support the plant that is growing. A process of bonsai repotting and root pruning should be performed to deal with this problem. It permit the tree to grow healthy and vigorously for a long time and will reorganize the root system. Tips in the following post will provide you with an overview on the best way to do bonsai repotting by yourself.
First, you have to test whether it's already the time for repotting that is bonsai. This needs to be done each year during early springtime, when the tree remains in dormancy. Gradually ease the tree from its pot and analyze the rootball. It's already the time for bonsai repotting to be executed in case you see long roots encircling the inner side of the pot or the rootball.
Prepare a brand new pot, in which the tree will be planted, or clean the old one. Cover with a plastic net, fixing it with a piece of wire. Then put a layer of grit on the base of the pot, on top of it a layer of ground, on which the tree will soon be put, after which to enable emptying.

The next part of the bonsai repotting procedure will be to displace the old ground from your rootball, preferably using chopsticks, when the pot is ready. Then prune the longest roots using a sharp pair of scissors or shears. Also look for any infected, dead, injured or rotting roots, and remove them too to avoid dispersing root rot. Plan to remove up to 1/3 of general root mass.
Eventually place the tree inside the pot that is prepared and tie it with the wire that is anchorage, to be sure that it won't 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 that there are no air pockets. Water the compost thoroughly, to help it settle.
The tree will need about six weeks for regeneration with the bonsai repotting operation entire. After that, its root system will probably be able to develop growing fine feeder roots in a denser rootball, than what could be achieved with roots that are unpruned. This will translate into more essential nutrients feeding your precious plant, and in effect its improved health, vibrancy along with your enjoyment of its beauty.
