beautiful crystals on this mini-paper flower within about 6 hours. Simply pour
the crystal growing solution into the small plastic base and insert the specially prepared flower-stem. The crystal solution will soak into the stem and slowly move up to the very tip due to capillary action. As the solution evaporates white snow crystals are deposited all over the stem. A delicate treasure that can be admired for days. Crystal colours vary.

does it work?
pre-cut paper stem has been treated with a chemical that reacts with the crystal
growing solution. After placing the stem in the special solution leave it
undisturbed for several hours. However, if you notice uneven crystal growth you
may want to rotate the plastic base every 15 minutes or so. As the solution
evaporates and the stem dries, snow-white crystals will start to appear. Within a
few hours your mini flower will be covered with delicate crystal
action and how the crystal growing solution is able to work against gravity
and reach the top of the paper stem. Just like water moving from the roots to
the very tips of real flowers, plants and trees.

if some of the solution has cyrstalized upon opening, the crystals will grow
