 Experience the awe creating power of these flower shapes to grow much larger than their original size. Simply add the shapes to water and watch in amazement as they expand! The flowers take a day or so to fully grow and they are fun to play with and decorate with! They even slip, slide and explode. The shapes can be dried out and they will return to their original shape so that you can use them again! These flowers are safe, non-toxic, and environmentally friendly.
 
   Students love to feel the slippery, gel shapes with their hands. Also, great for starting seeds and growing plants so that the roots can be seen.
 
   The shapes absorb faster when placed in warmer water because the individual molecules move much more quickly into the tiniest spaces in the beads. The shapes will even hydrate when placed in carbonated beverages also trapping the gases released. Salt water will inhibit absorption by the shapes because the bond between salt and water interferes with the bonds of the water and the shapes. Acidic water will cause the shapes to shrink by degrading the bonds between the water and the shapes.
 
Chemical Family: Polyacrylate/ polyacrylamide salt
Chemical Name: Acrylamide/Potassium Acrylate Copolymer, Crosslinked
 
The flower shapes are cross-linked copolymers that rapidly absorb water by using the process of osmosis. When water comes in contact with the polymer, it moves from outside the polymer to the inside and causes it to grow and expand. A polymer is a group of molecules that are linked together. Polymer chains are elastic and will continue to grow to a certain point. The polymer in the shapes is special in the sense that it is polar so that it mixes with water.

These flowers are similar to the beads and spheres that we also sell. 
 
 Ages 7 and up.
