Yeah, they dry out quick coz not much soil around the roots. Using a wick sounds a good idea - never tried anything like that myself tho...

Firstly Leigh, your bonsai needs repotting. you can't do it now, you'll have to do it in spring. For a quality bonsai soil medium use "Tesco Sophisticat Pink" cat litter and 20 percent old pine bark. I jest you not!

oderless cat litter,not the wood kind is if you keep little rodents the best litter you can use as aposed to sawdust while were dishing out tips

p.s. Leigh, the cat litter is great for non bonsai trees, shrubs and plants too.
Tesco "Sophisticat Pink" cat litter is made from Danish Moler Clay.
DON'T use wood or paper pulp or clumping cat litter as it's no good for our purposes
