nano flowers

No soil is needed for these flowers; instead, substitute earth for sodium silicate to grow these crystal flowers.

These nano “flowers” are crystalline structures that have been formed and colored by chemical processes. By changing the temperature, pH, and carbon dioxide of the petri dish planters, which enabling to grow intricate, delicate, and microscopic fields of blooms. Though the process isn’t revolutionary by scientific means, the transplantation of a common tool in crystal growth research to an artistic application is noteworthy discovery.
