Underwater Bonsai Video

I thought I would start the new year with something rather unusual, I picked this up from a friend on IBC. A beautifully curved deadwood of Sabina chinesis is attached to java moss resembling leaves. Different trunk and leaves are combined to form a Bonsai

Water and Bonsai

  1. I find it rather unnatural, all the fishes and shrimps swimming aroud the tree 🙂
    As Andre wrotes, japanese photographer Takashi Amano is considered as a founder of aquascapes. This is a quite new way how to create fish tank, with a good layout and nice plants. Fishes are not so important. I think Amano´s layouts are inspired by zen gardens, or arranging suiseki stones. For more info, google Aqua Design Amano. Some nice aquatic gardens can be found for example here: http://showcase.aquatic-gardeners.org/2012/
    It´s a little off topic, but I like it. Art has no boundaries, does not matter if it´s bonsai, stone, suiseki, aquascape – all about nature 🙂
    Thanks for nice post.
