Bonsai need to be regularly repotted, especially younger bonsai (under 10 yrs. old) due to various factors: their pots become root bound; soil runs out of nutrients and imbalances of salt and Ph levels occur etc. Repotting will help to correct this and enable the bonsai to reach its full potential with fresh growing medium and pruning overgrown or excessive roots.
Apart from watering, repotting is probably one of the most important and misunderstood processes. It is also a good time to thin your plant’s foliage mass to help reduce the stress on the bonsai.
Heathcote’s bonsai curator Seth Nelson will show you when you should repot, how to repot, what you need to repot your bonsai, and much more.
Feel free to bring your own tree and a pot that you’d like to work with and learn step-by-step as you go.
