it's more fun than watching paint dry! – Magic DIY Crystal Growing Garden (Mercury) Reviews

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

Pros:
It's a fun way of spending your week watching crystal grow. I bought this for my wife as a little present. apparently she liked it, and thinks it's more fun than uh...paint... the bottle is quite nice
Cons:
it takes a bit of time to grow. i'm not sure if it has to do with the PRECISE opening of the bottle at 24 hours or something...
Other:
i could grow crystals myself by pouring super saturated solutions of salt with some vinegar on a stone, but it wouldn't look as nice. maybe i'll try growing msg crystals instead, they are long and slender
Bottomline:
not very useful, but makes a good decoration
