Does my Bonsai need to be repotted?

10 years ago

Hi All,

So last week my girlfriend got me a juniper bonsai from a plant nursery. Upon looking at it I noticed that some of the roots were exposed on the surface.

So i guess my question is:

A) Do I need to re-pot it to where the roots are completely under the ground?

B) Should I just cover the roots with more bonsai mix?

C) Is it fine the way it is, and I shouldn't be worried?

I guess I'm really concerned because its Autumn and I know dormancy season is coming soon.

But then again I live in Southeast Texas where our winters aren't really "winters"

Thanks in advance.
