Grow the classic salt crystal garden. This video is time lapse photography of a crystal garden, where 1 second = 30 minutes of crystal growing time. The crystal solution was made by mixing 3 tablespoons ammonia, 3 tablespoons of Mrs. Stewart's laundry bluing (Prussian Blue), and 1 tablespoon of salt. The solution wicks up a cardboard tube, allowing the crystals to grow on the surface.
