Botryoidal Spring is part of the White Creek Group which includes A-0 Geyser and Spindle Geyser. As its name indicates, Botryoidal Spring was originally a hot spring (and botryoidal means 'bubbly'). In 1996, seismic activity caused to change from a sparkling spring into an explosive geyser.
It erupts for a duration of about one minute with an interval of around 3–5 minutes between eruptions. The fountain reaches a height of 10 feet (3 m).
Immediately after an eruption the pool is totally quiet. An eruption starts with no warning, most beginning with a blue bubble caused by immense steam bubbles forming below.
