What types of clay dissolve in water?

Not fired clay, and this can even include Play-Doh or modeling clay or whatever (actually, that would be better… I need something cheap that will kind of disintegrate in a container of water).

Also, it doesn’t have to dissolve completely, just enough that there are really noticeable changes/distortions in the original form of the clay after being submerged in the water for a certain amount of time.

    Unfired earth clay (pottery/ceramic), or air dry clay will do it.

    Home made flour “play dough” will do it rather quickly.

    I don’t think real Play-Doh will and polymer clay which is ground up PVC plastic with a moistening solvent that bakes out will almost certainly not.

    Modeling clay, which is oil and wax moistened and never hardens will not

    Any type of clay will do. Whenever clay gets wet it begins to want to dissolve and turn into a slip.

    the previous responders have been top-on approximately backside watering. it is very genuine for somebody who has little journey which incorporate your self. i’ve got discovered that I even have super success with the plastic “self watering” pots that are bought at mass-retailers. (which incorporate Wall-Mart) they’re inexpensive and intensely forgiving, yet once you opt for for to maintain the pot you have have been given, get an previous soup bowl for a saucer – there will be adequate intensity so as which you would be able to fill it a million/2 way. finished saucers continually seem to get bumped, sending water on your stuff you opt for for to maintain dry. (a minimum of that’s what happens to me.) you have heard approximately steadily increasing the dimensions of a plant’s pot because it grows, yet cutting-edge potting soil’s have made that much less significant. That stated, flora basically approximately continually have too small a pot and fairly respond to an more desirable length, so possibly purchase a small bag of potting mixture. it can’t be very laptop, however the mixes with controlled-launch fertilizer paintings super. despite you do, avert “funds” or “domicile” manufacturers – flora seem to comprehend while they have been taken on a inexpensive date. by way of fact it is iciness top now you probable do no longer could desire to rigidity approximately giving your plant too lots mild. placed it in a vivid, sunny place and desire for the suited. AND, if for some reason it would not make it, you would be wanting a sturdy pot and soil for attempt # 2. sturdy success! thought after examining others: whether it is a spider plant, I even have seen scarry image’s of them breaking ceramic pots. Spider plant roots do no longer look like roots – they’re extra like a mass of long, skinny fleshy arms. possibly which will help in identity.

    ceramic/natural clay. I think airdry clay too. Not polymer clays like sculpey or fimo. Not oil-based clay.

    Playdoh is just flour, so that would dissolve too.
