Salt crystals growing

Salt crystals are growing
Salt crystals form and grow as water evaporates in hot tropical sun

Salt production in the salt fields is limited to the real dry months of the dry season in Cambodia. Rain will dilute the ocean water and stop crystal formation. During the hot and really dry season it takes approximately 3 days after refilling the salt fields until salt can be harvested. Hence salt crystals actually grow pretty fast.
