How to Fertilize the Bonsai Fertilizing regularly during the growth period is essential for the Bonsai to survive. It is not recommended to fertilize trees that have been re-potted for close to a month and also those trees that have a disease. How to Repot the Bonsai To prevent a tree from being bound to the pot and ultimately starving to death, it is important that it is re-potted regularly. By re-potting, you are allowing the Bonsai to acquire new nutrients that it requires to keep flourishing. The species of the tree and the size of the container determine how often the Bonsai needs to be re-potted. Trees that tend to grow faster are repotted after two years while those older and mature ones need to be repotted after every three or five years. Repotting shouldn’t be done on a routine but instead, one should check on the tress every early spring by carefully removing from the pot. When the roots of the Bonsai start to circle the roots system; then it’s time for repotting. When the roots are still contained in the soil, you should wait for another year before repotting. Repotting is done during the early spring, when the Bonsai is still dormant.
