The Groasis Waterboxx plant cocoon is an instrument that supports the growth of plants in unfavorable conditions by collecting rainwater and trapping water from condensation.
The Groasis Waterboxx® plant cocoon is an instrument that supports plants and trees to survive in difficult circumstances without using groundwater or electricity. It collects water by catching rainwater, and also by producing and catching water from condensation. It subsequently distributes the collected water over an extended period, to the tree growing in the center of the Waterboxx® plant cocoon. Furthermore, it stimulates the capillary formation of the soil; prevents the evaporation of groundwater; steadies the temperature around the roots; fights competitive weeds near the planted tree; and can even prevent damage by rodents. In this way, the Groasis Waterboxx® plant cocoon stimulates optimal growth of the young tree.
Goal 2: Aims to achieve food security by allowing farmers to plant in areas where it was hard to before due to climate conditions and lack of water.
Groasis Waterboxxes are produced worldwide in different regions so as to keep the product affordable.
The Groasis Technology consists of 5 patents, owned by 4 different companies and private persons.
Users can obtain the Groasis Waterboxx through their distributors. Any interested party can also apply to be a re-seller or producer of the Waterboxx.
Over 1 million products have been sold as of 2016.
- The Waterboxx needs to be filled with fifteen liters (slightly less than four gallons) of water at set-up.
- The Waterboxx comes with a pre-drilled hole for one wick.
- The Waterboxx will release differing amounts of water based on how thirsty the plant is (averaging 50 mL released per day), so a tree poorly suited for the area may use water faster.
- When gardening with the Waterboxx, you should generally insert at least one wick per plant.
- Extra holes will need to be drilled with a 3/16 inch drill bit. In this case, the Waterboxx may need manual refilling every one week to one month in dry climates.
- In wetter climates you will likely not need to refill the Waterboxx, even with more than one wick, after set-up.
- Full instructions on how to use the Groasis Waterboxx can be found here.

- With the Groasis waterboxx a seed or tree is planted in a way that the capillary is not destroyed when planting the tree.
- In the middle of the Groasis waterboxx there is space to put a seed, a plant or a tree.
- This plant can develop its roots under the Groasis waterboxx.
- The Groasis waterboxx produces water via artificial condensation.
- It collects rainwater.
- It distributes the collected water to the plant on a daily base.
- It stimulates the rise of the capillary water to the top of the soil under the Groasis waterboxx.
- It prevents evaporation of the capillary water.
- It prevents the development of weeds around the plant.
- It prevents grazing of the plants by a certain variety of animals.
- It prevents erosion of the soil around the plant.
- It prevents heating of the soil around the plant.
- It stimulates a balanced temperature in the root area.
- The advantage of planting without destroying the capillary is that the Groasis waterboxx can also be used for planting on rocks.
- With one wick and proper setup, and intact Waterboxx should not need refilling for trees.
- The Waterboxx works anywhere there is intermittent dew and intermittent rainfall.
Studies have shown a 90% survival rate of trees using the Groasis Waterboxx.
No expressed safety concerns.

Evaluation of the Groasis Waterboxx is based on water saved, plant success rate, and the climate and geographic conditions plants are able to live in compared to plants and trees without the Waterboxx.
