Nesabaki is a procedure that involves trimming and arranging the roots of a bonsai plant when it is replanted, potted or repotted. It is especially important for plants that have been collected from the mountains, as they may have long, thick or damaged roots that need to be reduced or removed. Nesabaki helps to improve the health, appearance and stability of the bonsai plant by creating a compact and balanced root system that fits well in the pot. Nesabaki also allows the plant to absorb water and nutrients more efficiently and prevents root rot or decay.
