1.) Bring distilled water to ALMOST boiling, this is critical. 2.) Slowly add NaNO3 until no more will dissolve in the liquid. 3.) STIR CONSTANTLY. 4.) Chill until cool to touch, making sure undissolved chemical stays in pan. 5.) Wash pan. 6.) Place small "seed" crystal on saucer. 7.) Pour chemical SLOWLY onto saucer, if you pour too fast you will make a mess, but if you pour too slow, you will find the crystals climbing the stream of solution and crystallizing in the glass, which is hard to clean when attached to a saucer. 8.) Alternately you can just pour it into a container and touch it, but that is no fun. 9.) It is absolutely critical that ALL items used in this experiment are perfectly clean, I would recommend using paper cups for the chilling of the liquid.
