They are both the formation found inside a cave, one grows up from the ground the other grows down for the roof of the cave, but do you know which one is which?
They are formed by water seeping through cracks in the rock. Minerals in the water are released when they come into contact with the air in a cave.
The minerals form solid deposits, either hanging from the ceiling, as the water drops down, or growing up from the floor as the water splashes down.
A stalactite hangs from a cave ceiling, while a stalagmite grows up from the cave floor.
So remember Tites hang down, Mites grow up!
