Bonsai Repotting for Beginners in Standing Stone
For each 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. An operation of bonsai repotting and root pruning should be performed to deal with this problem. It enable the tree to grow healthy and vigorously for a long time and will reorganize the root system. Tricks in the following post provides you with an overview on how best to do bonsai repotting by yourself.
First, you should check whether it is already the time for repotting that is bonsai. This has to be done annually during early springtime, when the tree remains in dormancy. Gradually ease the tree out of its own pot and analyze the rootball. Should you see long roots encircling the rootball or the interior side of the pot, it is already the time for bonsai repotting to be implemented.
Prepare a fresh pot, where the tree will soon be put, or clean the old one. Cover the drainage holes using a plastic mesh, securing it with a piece of wire. Then put a layer of grit on the bottom of the pot, then, and to allow draining of earth, on which the tree will soon be planted a layer on top of it.

The next step in the bonsai repotting procedure is to displace the old ground from your rootball, rather using chopsticks, when the pot is ready. Then prune the longest roots using a sharp pair of shears or scissors. Also search for any roots that are dead, decaying, injured or infected, and remove them too to refrain from distributing root rot. Aim to remove up to 1/3 of general root mass.
Finally set the tree in the prepared pot and tie it with the anchorage wire, to ensure that wind won't rocks it in the forthcoming 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 now need about six weeks for regeneration, with the bonsai repotting operation complete. After that, its root system will be able to develop freely, growing fine feeder roots in a more compact rootball, than what might be achieved with roots that are unpruned. This will translate into more essential nutrients feeding your precious plant, and in your enjoyment of its own attractiveness along with effect its improved health, vibrancy.
