"Green Sand Sea" / Watering device

In the desert where trees can be planted, the surface of the desert is short of water and the water vapor is easy to volatilize. The most difficult part of planting trees in such deserts is how to provide them with enough water before they can draw enough water from the deep ground. The growing trees can grow their roots to the deep underground water. The product is used to solve the water supply from the time when trees are planted to the time when they survive, and guide the roots of trees to grow downward, so as to greatly improve the survival rate of trees after stopping watering.
