Rain Catcher

Collect rainwater and water your indoor plants

+1 Goal
15 m
Once per week

Indoor plants love rainwater - fact! It contains more of the nutrients they need than tap water. So let's catch some and give them water.

What difference does it make?

Freshwater is getting scarcer, and pumping it around uses lots of energy. Being aware of water and using it carefully is very important.

What do you need?

  • Plastic bottle - the bigger the better
  • Pair of scissors
  • Small stones or pebbles

Step by step

Where should I leave the rain catcher?

Anywhere in the open air, sheltered from the wind.

How can I collect more water?

The wider the cone of the upper part, the more water you'll collect. A roof is like a giant funnel, with all the water flowing down the gutter.
A good project in the summer would be to collect water from the roof in a water butt if you don't do that already... More on that later!

Can I drink the water?

Best not. But the plants will drink it happily or you can flush the loo with it.
