Welcome to Science Buddies. Unfortunately, you haven't provided enough information for us to effectively help you. This type of question is the point behind performing a science experiment/project. If you are looking for how to put a project together that answers your question, take a look at this one on the Science Buddies Project Idea list, located here: ... p082.shtml

you could modify it to include the other material other than just Borax and compare crystal growth between the two under the same conditions.

Please post back if you have questions on how to put a project together or if you need advice on executing the experiment or interpreting the results and other such questions like that.
Hope this helps.
