Ca (s) + Ca(NO3)2 reaction?

It was observed that when calcium metal was added to calcium nitrate, the calcium seemed to dissolve in the solution, but bits of the metal fell out of solution and floated in the solution. Would you then say that the calcium remained solid and therefore no reaction took place?

    Ca(NO3)2is a solid! so presumably you didn't add it to that at all but to Ca(NO3)2 solution?

    The only reaction with calcium metal is the usual one with water

    Ca + 2H2O --> Ca(OH)2 + H2

    There is NO reaction with Ca(NO3)2
