How long does it take for a lava lamp to heat up?

It takes about 30-40 minutes before the wax inside the lamp is 'oozing' and flowing. After about 10 minutes, the wax will erupt from the bottom in a kind of stalagmite formation, which will then break up and sink to the bottom as it melts into liquid. Then the bubbles will start to rise and fall. The longer you leave the lamp on, the smaller the bubbles will be.
