This cutting was rooted in water and then fixed onto the rock. Still in the process of gripping the rock. I am adding liquid NPK nutrients to the water. Water is changed once a week. Eventually, the rock could either sit on a tray of soil or water. I haven't decided on it yet but I am fascinated by Vietnamese bonsai and they have both styles. The top rock is sitting loosely, right now. Do you think i should fix it permanently to the bottom one ? Any suggestions for the future direction of this piece is most welcome.
