The Groasis waterboxx can be used for:
- Young vegetables or flowering plants
- Young trees
In nature a seed first develops its roots before the plant starts to grow. The logic of this concept is that the plant first provides itself with water before the water begins to evaporate.
This means that when we use the Groasis waterboxx, we must try to follow the same principles; and so, we have to plant our trees as small as possible.
Choose plants that are in balance with the environment
If we want to reforest the world or plant a tree in our garden, we have to consider which trees, shrubs or plants can survive after their roots have reached the capillary water. Some species can be used all over the world, and other species only in specific regions. In the dry savannas of Mongolia, different trees are growing from those in the savannah of Mali or in a garden in California - this is due to the differences in temperature. To make the right choice, we only have to look around us to see old specimens of certain varieties of plants; then we know that they will survive if we remove the Groasis waterboxx after 1 - 2 years (after the tree roots have reached the capillary water).
When we have made this choice of species, we can start planting. This is simple: we do NOT make a deep planting hole, but just a small hole at most, 10 cm (4") deep - only to break the hard surface layer. Then, put the tree in the hole together with the pot soil. Put some of the soil back, and then put the Groasis waterboxx on top of it. In case we are planting on rocks and it is not possible to dig a hole, we have to look for a crevice. Put the pot soil of the tree on the crevice, and then put the Groasis waterboxx over the tree. The roots will automatically enter the crevices and start looking for water.
After a year or so, we check how deep the roots are. This is mainly represented by the health and height of the plant above ground. If the roots are deep enough, we simply lift the Groasis waterboxx and repeat the planting steps and process elsewhere with new plants. In this way, one Groasis waterboxx can be reused at least 10 times. That too is sustainability!
