Bonsai Re-potting for Beginners in Branson West
For every bonsai tree, eventually comes a time when its root system has taken all the space in the pot, restricting additional development necessary to support the growing plant. To deal with this problem, a process of root pruning and bonsai repotting must be performed. It will reorganize the root system and enable the tree to grow vigorously and healthy 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 check whether it is already the time for repotting that is bonsai. This must be done every year during early springtime, when the tree continues to be in dormancy. Gently 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 executed.
Prepare a brand new pot, in which the tree will be planted, or clean the old one. Cover the drainage holes with a plastic mesh, securing it with a part of wire. Then put a layer of grit on the bottom of the pot, then, and to enable draining of earth, where the tree will probably be put a layer on top of it.

Another step in the bonsai repotting process would be to displace the old soil in the rootball, preferably using chopsticks when the pot is ready. Prune the longest roots with a sharp pair of scissors or shears. Also look for just about any decaying, dead, wounded or infected roots, and remove them too to avoid dispersing root rot. Aim to remove up to 1/3 of general root mass.
Eventually put the tree in the pot that is prepared and tie it with the wire that is anchorage, to ensure that it won't be rocked by wind in the coming weeks, when its roots are not yet completely 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.
With the bonsai repotting operation entire, the tree will now need about six weeks for regeneration. After that, its root system is going to be able to grow growing more fine feeder roots in a denser rootball, than what could be achieved with roots that are unpruned. This can translate into more essential nutrients feeding your beloved plant, and in effect its improved health, vibrancy as well as your enjoyment of its own attractiveness.
