Just watched a cool video on YouTube about desert areas using fog nets to capture water. This area got 5 inches of rain a year. These nets were set up and a village of 1600 people could each get 18 liters of water a day. They used to have to walk 3 miles round trip for half that much.

It can be used for irrigation. 👀 if it were camo I bet it would be nice for guerilla grows. Lol. A small unit with a hose a short distance from a plant? Nice! I bet it could be DIY.

The technology is really cool. They're using a mesh stretched between poles. The moisture gathers really fast and runs down the mesh to channels that drain into a container. Clean drinking/irrigation water. 

The amount of water was unbelievable.

I recommend any of you outside growers to check it out!

Watching more videos. 

 

Water harp. Just vertical monofilament.  3 x as much water.

 

Next video? Metal mesh with a current running through it. The fog/vapor goes through the wire mesh and returns back to it attracted by the current, collecting even more! 

 

Lol. It's exciting.
