There is an upper part with fennel shape, already present in nature design and often with the task of collecting water. In fact, following this purpose, the rain flows from the fennels through the stems, then to the tank. The water storage will have an ON/ OFF switch in order to water the earth battery in the soil, in this case called MFC (Microbial Fuel Cell).
