I know, how cute are they?

As for the discussion thread... :jawdrop:
You've heard the expression compare the meerkat?
I wonder if they would pay for that image?
:D

Thanks for dropping by Helen :)

I trust its inside at the moment, away from radiators but not too cool
Yes, it's inside. I searched online for info and drainage is mentioned, my pot is fully water tight, is that a problem, it's how it was supplied

Absolutely.
Good drainage is pretty much paramount in any small tree, so the roots don't rot.
Get it moved ASAP repot into something like 50% posting soil & 50% cat litter ( yes really Tesco's dust free is good) or rough grit. but less with the grit, if thats what you go for say 60/40
Fine Orchid bark is also good.
Everyone has their favourite mix.
At the end of the day, It needs to be light and well draining (y)
And don't be tempted to go for something like Acadama ( Bonsai soil)
Its clumps and compacts very quickly and is bloody expensive.


They look very distinguished, I can just see a photo editor adding a monocle to them.
Lol Thanks Stuart.

Lovely Pair image, thse expressions are just sublime!. Lovely colours etc.
Thanks Jim :)

First one for me as well. Growing up, Cheetahs were my favourite animals but whenever we go to the zoo they always seemed to be asleep!
Cheers Steve.
They do tend to sleep a lot don't they?

Dora was always my favourite character, and sadly I think I share some of her attributes :ROFLMAO: Nice colourful shot there.
Thanks Bee, I always like "Gill" just like me dark and sinister :D

I'm not so fond of ladybirds these days. Sometimes we get inundated with them
Better those than the aphids slaughtering my plants and little trees (y)

Half... fascinating shot - I have hundreds of those breaking out every year. Somewhere in my walls they have a breeding ground.

I do like that.

Nothing more constructive to add other than I would possibly have cloned out the mark behind you - a hinge is it?
