How to Grow Your Water Beads:
Simply place the beads into a container of water for 4 - 6 hours. Remember that you've got around 7000 in a packet, and they grow to many times their original size so don't put too many in at once! We recommend you use distilled water for best results, but tap water should work fine too.
