There are also desert leaves that can do that. They actually look pretty fleshy. Some of them have very deep roots as well. The leaves have these
deep grooves that collect any dew and channel it to the roots.
I live in the south and it is very humid anyway. I found one day a few inches of water inside some stacked rubbermaid containers. The moisture just
got trapped inside those. I bet it would taste awful, like plastic though.
A solar still would work pretty well around here. I also heard about this thing that turns salty or brackish water into clean water. It works like a
solar still to collect the steam.
I think that UV light will kill some impurities in water if you can't boil it. You can put water into a plastic jug and leave it in the sun to settle.
The light will kill some stuff. You should definately filter water through cloth and then boil water if you can though.
I also heard of this thing that gets water from the leaves of trees. It is basically a bottle that you put around the tree leaves. It collects the
humidity from the tree leaves. The tree keeps sending moisture into its leaves and it keeps getting vaporize out and then collected in the bottle. You
can collect some water in this bottle and drink it, but you have to wait for it to collect. It might take overnight or something but you can have a
This bottle snapped around the leaves but maybe there is a way you can make your own. It needs to have a wide mouth or be able to go around some
leaves but it needs to be sealed so moisture is trapped condenses.
