Bonsai Re-potting for Beginners in Busby
For every bonsai tree, eventually comes a time when its root system has taken all the space in the pot, restricting further development necessary to support the plant that is growing. An operation of root pruning and bonsai repotting should be completed, to deal with this dilemma. It'll reorganize the root system and enable the tree to grow vigorously and healthy for several years. Tips in the next article will give you an overview on how to do bonsai repotting by yourself.
First, you should test whether it is already the time for bonsai repotting. This has to be done annually during early spring, when the tree continues to be in dormancy. Gently ease the tree out of its own pot and analyze the rootball. It's already the time for bonsai repotting to be carried out if you see long roots encircling the inner side of the pot or the rootball.
Prepare a new pot, when the tree will be planted, or clean the old one. Cover using a plastic mesh, fastening it with a bit of wire. Then put a layer of grit on the underside of the pot, to allow emptying, and after that on top of it a layer of earth, on which the tree will probably be put.

When the pot is ready, another part of the bonsai repotting process would be to displace the old soil from your rootball, preferably using chopsticks. Then prune the longest roots using a sharp pair of scissors or shears. Also look for almost any dead, decaying, injured or infected roots, and remove them too to refrain from distributing root rot. Plan to remove up to 1/3 of general root mass.
Finally set 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 forthcoming weeks, when its roots are not yet completely regenerated. Fill the remainder 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 is likely to have the ability to grow growing fine feeder roots in a denser rootball, than what might be performed with unpruned roots. This will definitely translate into more essential nutrients feeding your cherished plant, and in your enjoyment of its beauty and effect its improved health, vibrancy.
