This is a continuation of this http://mycotopia.net...ead.php?t=14010 thread.

We left off with foaf putting this cup

away to try to grow crystals. She did end up removing the plastic wrap and covering the cup with a paper towel, but the rate of evaporation was still very slow.

After 52 days she poured the remaining naptha into a glass baking dish and let it evaporate in front of a fan.

This was scraped up resulting in these crystals and some nasty looking goo



She said this is what the glass looked like before the remaining naptha was poured into the baking dish to evaporate.

Hopefully she will send more pics soon.

Foaf finally sent some pics, she hopes you enjoy them.

Here you can see a better view of the crystal structure on the side of the glass that is due to the naptha evaporating. You can also see some crystal structures in the bottom of the glass.
