Lychee trees


I’ve now got four Lychee seedlings, grown from four plump Thai lychees from Tesco. Tasty they were too :) I’ve done some googling on the subject and apparently they can be grown as houseplants. They like acid soid, a fairly humid asmosphere, but not sitting in water and no sudden temperature changes. My windows face either North or South, so I think I’ll try both and see what suceeds. I’m thinking I should try bonsai-ing them as they normally grow up to 30 metres !
At the moment they share a pot and are covered by a budget cloche ie. a clear plastic drinking glass. The seedlings are cute looking and the growth is almost visible at this stage. A thick white root is already poking out of one drainage hole.
