At times It can happen, you think the pot is stable on the bench but a few seconds later your bonsai is on the ground, and what is left of the pot you chose so carefully during winter is a bunch of shards.
- 4 weeks ago I repotted the tree leaving the rootball untouched, just replacing part of the soil with a new mix
- 1 week ago the force of gravity, with the support of my lack of attention, made a victim: pot on the ground. After a good spray of water on the roots, I put the tree in the previous pot, slightly smaller, leaving the rootball untouched again, filling the remaining space with new soil and working with the chopsticks
Since the roots have never been cut, just pushed a little to fit the pot, am I still in time to attempt a third repot in a definitive container or should I wait until next spring?
The tree is an Itoigawa juniper.
