In this DIY i will be showing how to get water in a hot place

Things you need:

• A container that is big enough to hold a few rocks and plants

• Some small pebbles or rocks

• A few plants

• and plastic wrap

• a smaller container

- Firstly, take your container and add a few rocks

- Then add the plants

- Then add the small container on the plants and rocks

- Then cover the top with plastic wrap, but make sure to cover up the whole thing!

The reason this works is because plants to something that is similar to sweating, which is called transpiration. It is a process that occurs in plants when they release unnecessary water through their leaves.

    I believe you have to put a small weight on top of and in the center of the plastic wrap to cause it to sag so the condensation will drip into your catch basin.

    If you place a small pebble in the center of the plastic wrap on the top, it will make enough of a dip that the water droplets will drip right into your small bowl.


    This is a great survival trick. More important than getting water, it gets you clean water. Lots of places have water but it isn't safe to drink.
