Daisuke Nakajima shows us the process of creating Aqua Bonsai – fascinating living works of art.
Aqua Bonsai is using the technology of hydroponics (a method of growing plants using mineral nutrient solutions, in water, without soil). It takes time for the trees to adjust, but the creator has several trees growing in only water.
First, a Bonsai that was initially growing in soil is put in a circulation system of water and growth-lights. The details about this system is kept secret by the creator, but it results in a Bonsai tree that can thrive without any soil.
