Desert Plants By: Michael Clementson & Kalvyn SabaDos

Elephant Tree

The Elephant Plant has adapted to the desert in many ways. First it's thick trunk has adapted so it can hold water for days, along with this its lower limbs are also designed to hold water. The rest of the branches are relatively small and has legume like leaves so they don't use a lot of water. Also it is a drought deciduous plant.

Desert Lily

The desert lily has adapted to it's environment too. One way it has adapted is that their bulbs can stay in the ground for several years waiting for enough moisture to flower, and it only flowers from March to May.

Desert Willow Tree

The Desert Willow will only grow where water can be found nearby, and branches are hairy or sticky to keep curious animals away.

Saguaro Cactus

The saguaro cactus's Growth and water capacity allows to hold enough water that it can flower every year and live to be around 150 years old. Also the cactus has a storage place called ribs wher it can store rain water to save for later.

The Saguaro Cactus Survival Water Bottle

The Saguaro Cactus Survival Water Bottle, harnesses the natural ability of the Saguaro Cactus to collect and store loads of water in a little easy to carry gallon sized ball. The cactus is cut and shaped to hold a gallon of water. Once cut into the consumer can drink a gallon of fresh water and whenever it rains it can easily refil. Also it is a good Survival tool because it not only can be used to hold and collect water, but the flesh can in emergency be consumed for some nutrients.
