How Bonsai Focus Repotting Mix Works:
Successful indoor growing is about replicating a plant’s natural outdoor conditions as closely as possible and this is certainly no different for bonsai trees. Bonsai Focus Repotting Mix’s unique blend of selected peats, fine grit, sand and bark provides a smooth consistency that your Bonsai roots will love, delivering the perfect balance between moisture retention and aeration, with free flowing drainage.
Using Bonsai Focus Repotting Mix:
Open the bag and pour the Repotting Mix into a bucket or similar container. Sometimes large clumps can form during storage and transit, so work the mixture inside the bucket with your hands to help it regain its smooth texture.
With great care, ease your bonsai tree from its original container, loosen the root ball slightly and remove any excess soil. You can then gently cut away any dead or unhealthy roots using a sharp knife or a pair of scissors. As always, ensure that any cutting instruments are properly sterilized before use to remove the chances of passing on pathogenic bacteria or fungi.
Add a layer of Bonsai Focus Repotting Mix to the bottom of your container and place your bonsai tree on the top, gently working it into the soil before adding extra repotting mix to the sides. Give it a quick pat down around the edges, and keep adding new substrate until just below the rim.
Water well without using any nutrient, allowing at least 10% run-off. Keep your bonsai out of direct sunlight and preferably in the shade for the following three weeks to allow roots to grow. There’s no need to apply any nutrient at this stage, as Bonsai Focus Repotting Mix contains enough to.
