How Does It Work?
Your crystal tree growing kit includes a pre-cut paper tree that is treated with a special chemical that reacts with the crystal growing solution. Pour on the crystal growing liquid and place the tree in a place where it will remain undisturbed for several hours. In just 15 minutes, you’ll notice colored crystals appearing on the tree. To make sure your tree grows evenly, rotate the tray every 15 minutes. After a few hours, your tree will be completely covered with beautiful crystals!
Crystallization Made Visible
Children of age six and up can enjoy watching the crystallization of a salt as they create a beautiful and colorful magic tree with the Magic Tree Crystal Kit from Steve Spangler Science. Crystallization is a process that occurs often in nature and that can be seen in coastal areas as the salt weathering of rocks. This crystal tree growing kit contains a crystal growing liquid that creates branch-like crystals as water from the solution begins to evaporate from the treated paper tree. The children feel a sense of accomplishment when four beautiful trees of yellow, green, orange and pink show up a few hours after they are prepared. The crystallized trees are non-toxic, but should not be eaten by children or pets, and once grown, they will last for several weeks.
Frequently Asked Questions
Is this non-toxic?
Yes. Even though they are non-toxic, that doesn’t mean we recommend treating them as an afternoon snack.
What colors do they grow?
Each tree grows individual colors of yellow, green, orange, or pink.
Will it still work if some of the liquid is crystallized?
Yes, even though the liquid might be crystallized, the tree will still grow just as well.
