Thanks for the reply. Yes, I pressed down on the bark and kept adding more as I repotted. I was surprised at how much bark could fit into the pot. It had looked OK (I didn't try lifting it though!). When I returned from my holiday it had dried out and now the bark seems really loose.

Should I replace the driest and loosest bark (on top) with bark that I have had soaking? Then I could soak the plant when it next needs to be watered to avoid overwatering it.
