Due to the increasing consequences of climate change, heat stresses and longer periods of drought will occur more widely and often. During these periods, both the high temperatures and water scarcity will affect the region's flora and fauna. To address this issue, the Groasis Waterboxx plantcocoon ® supports plants and trees to survive in difficult circumstances without using groundwater or electricity. By storing rainwater, and by producing and catching water from condensation, the Groasis Waterboxx distributes the collected water over an extended period. This technology uses 90 percent less water than drip irrigation while the optimal growth of a young three is stimulated.
