Notes

Plant Materials

  • Any plant will do as long as it is not poisonous.
  • Better if you use plants that grow fast.
  • You can also use trunk (saha) of banana and sprout of a bamboo.

Rock

  • You can use many rocks if you cannot find a single big rock for your mixture.
  • Only use rocks that will not break if place in liquid

Jar

  • If jars are too expensive or are not readily available in your location you can use glass or plastic water containers.

Paper

  • Any kind of paper as long as it could cover your wooden box.
  • The readily available paper to almost all places in the Philippines is newspaper.

String

  • Many times this could get loose. Use a rubber band instead.
  • This will also prevent ants and other insects from entering.
