I took the advice of pouring the solution over the tree AND in the base. The second one I just poured into the base as my own little experiment to see if it worked as well. Pouring it directly on the tree made for a much fuller tree as you can see. The downside? They don’t grow hard crystals. It’s fragile little puff balls that fall all as soon as you move it. I thought they were going to be hard crystals. They are also only 4 inches tall. The great thing is that it was fully done after 4 hours and started growing crystals within 15 minutes. The adults and the kids loved it. Great little gift but I think it should be more like 5 dollars instead of 9.
Fun, fun fun. My daughter loves this.
It was very nice. We kept it almost two months as a decoration! Suggested to many friend.
This was a Christmas gift for my 11 yr old niece. She absolutely loved it !
Just as advertised. Mine was slightly fuller than pictured here.
Great fun project that my daughters and I did. I love it and ordered another one already.
amazing! grows right before your eyes...very pretty
These are a fun, easy, inexpensive gift for birthday parties. We have given away lots, and kids always love them.
My 7 year old loved this!!! She got so excited about how much it changed and it created a very nice bonding moment with her. We love doing experiments and learning about the science. Makes me a proud momma :)
This was very interesting to watch. The tree is basically stiff paper that mounts into a plastic base. You pour the solution into the base and the 'tree' soaks up the solution. This creates the crystals as it grows. Was very neat - not expensive and was lots of fun!
The finished product looks just like the product photo. My 4-year-old daughter loves the tree and enjoyed looking at the crystals that fell off under the microscope. I did trim the bottom of the “tree” so that both parts sat flat in the solution.
We totally didn't expect how fast this little tree would bloom! In less than an hour the tree had little pink blossoms forming! As you can see in the advertising image, the bottom forms first. Like the image, out top never fully bloomed out. The pink blossoms do fall off easily, however, we put them back in the little tray, and added more water. The fallen blossoms dissolved, and the tree bloomed more. I suggest for the prettiest, and possibly sturdiest tree, that you take the time to separate and arrange the limbs artistically. The tree lasted about two weeks before falling apart. Great fun for the cheap price.
very cute pink tree. fun project. not a drop of magic water was missing from the bag.
