Silica gardens are tubular structures that form along the interface of multivalent metal salts and alk. solns. of sodium silicate, driven by a complex interplay of osmotic and buoyant forces together with chem. reaction. They display peculiar plant-​like morphologies and thus can be considered as one of the few examples for the spontaneous biomimetic self-​ordering of purely inorg. materials. ...
