English term or phrase: crystals ice
Bonjour,

Savez-vous comment on appelle ces tout petits cristaux vendus dans des sachets par les jardineries que l'on met à tremper dans l'eau pendant 1 heure et qui, en l'absorbant, deviennent 400 fois plus grands.

Ils sont vendus en plusieurs couleurs comme terre artificielle pour les plantes d'intérieur ou à des fins décoratives.

Un exemple ici (voir les 3 vases du centre) :

Merci et bonne journée.
