For those not familiar with the Waterboxx, it works in several ways, described in detail elsewhere on this site. In essence, however, it is a self recharging "water battery". It collects dew and rainwater from the environment, funnels this into the green basin using its lotus leaf inspired lid, and then slowly releases this water to the roots of the growing plant. The plant's roots grow straight down within the Waterboxx induced water column until they reach deeper capillary water. At this point (when the tree exhibits a growth spurt, the Waterboxx can be removed and replaced with mulch. The deeply rooted tree is now resistant to any further drought as it now has this deep root which has access to ground capillary water.
