- John Romano Transplanting & Pot Selection (May 20, 2018)
Repotting is one of the most essential task in establishing and maintaining a healthy bonsai. Proper soil and areful root work are elements of this work. There are different kinds of transplanting depending on the health of the tree, years in the pot, kind of soil it is currently in, stage of development, etc. Choosing the right pot is also important in this work - sometimes a larger 'grow pot' is more appropriate if the tree needs room to grow. We will examine all these elements in determining what your tree needs at its stage of development: evaluating the stage of the tree, soil to use, selecting appropriate pot, and carrying out the work.
