Like many other children, I grew single crystal salt crystals in a salt solution. This is a common and fun experiment for children.
However, with both this experiment, and with flux growth methods for single crystals in general, is there a limit on the size of the grown crystal?
That is, if I was to keep dumping in more salt so as to replenish the solute, would the crystal grow forever? And if not, what limits the size of these crystals?
