Mould

bad ventilation and pots with  water in or leaks gives mould a good place to grow . empty any water filled pots and don't water to often (they don't need it ,the plants)

Weeds

my garden use to have a duck pond at the bottom(use to be a farm around the corner)and we have found clay pipes and bottles and broken tiles and of course over the years lost toys that were my childrens.We also have a under ground spring and a covererd  well .

Posted: 29/11/2013 at 16:06

from what I have seen they like to grow  next to  a wall and restricted roots and the fruit  I have seen on these .I have miniature one and I know it does not like soggy feet and it does not like too much heat   .keep faith and don't re-pot to often its does not like to much movement.
