How crystals grow, ice edition

This is a follow-up to How crystals grow, marker edition.

Yes, I cheated.  Rather than put my microscope inside my freezer, I melted the layer of ice and then reversed the video.  Still fun, though.  My only complaint is that I started with a frost of very tiny ice crystals.  I’m going to try it again by placing my glass slide in another container to slow the crystallization.
