I think the reason some folks have trouble making these crystals grow is because they aren't following the directions exactly. I use filtered tap water that I measure and pour out of my brita. I heat the water on my stove in a pot. I stir in the bag of powder until it is all dissolved. I wait until it cools to add the seeding mixture (this set has you transfer the crystals from an opaque cup to a clear display cup for growing so you can make multiple at a time. I recommend this because the display cups are easier to see through, however, when you transfer the liquid you MUST wait 30 minutes for the contents to settle before you add the seeding crystals) Then once you sprinkle them on, don't stir or bump the container. You gotta let it sit for about a week before your crystals are fully developed. I usually wait until the tip of the highest crystal is about to peek out of the surface of the water.
I display my crystals on my windowsill in my kitchen instead of in the plastic display containers. I don't have kids though, so I'm not worried about them breaking or anything. Anyway, I love watching these crystals grow. They're hard enough to handle gently and observe, but some of the smaller crystals are fragile and can snap off. I wanted something that would make crystals for displaying and that is what I got! For $14 this was an awesome deal for me. The instructions were clear and concise and I'd totally buy it again (but then I'd have so many crystals my husband would start to worry!)
It was great watching the crystals grow with the different combination of powders provided. I got a candy thermometer for the boiling water and was not able to get the temperature as high as it needed to be, but pretty close. You have to pour the hot water into a glass measuring cup up to the recommend amount quickly before it has time cool and mix in the powder. Once mixed, let it cool and then pour into the plastic containers.
