Question from Project Crimson (Learnz)

How do the pohutukawa and rata cope so well when they grow in sand and lava rock?

All the sand and lava rock has no nutrients but when it rains the water drips down on the leaves  then trickles down the trunk and to the aerial roots  and when the water gets to the roots it fills with nutrients.
