Certainly there are several ways to capture rain water, but not all of it. Most people have rain barrels. @Dinu has a rather sophisticated system. I have just one barrel (due to limited space) that holds 220 litres. During the rainy season my barrel can fill up in a half hour. I made a special cover for the barrel so that it doesn't attract mosquitoes, so that wasn't a problem. I also installed a spigot. I would like to have 5 220 litre barrels but i don't have the space. There have been a couple of very good threads here about rain barrels. Up in the right corner of every page on this site is a "search" function and if you search "rain barrels" you will find some good ideas and information and photos in the previous threads.Is there anyway to do that?
You are sooo damned lucky!!! I have wanted to grown paan and pepper vine so bad but they cant bear our scroching hot weather....Pepper corn( Piper nigrum ) or black pepper plant, its a vine (creeper) that can be grown easily from cutting, one can find the plant gives root at every leaf node. peppercorn are hot but its aroma and flavor can magically change cuisine. Greatly improve soup, stir fries and meat based cuisine (freshly grounded is better).

I recently collected cutting, best time to plant, is at the beginning of rainy season. I used a roll of fence wire mesh as support, but it does best under shade of big tree.

Lovely plants you have..... but your curry plants look different than what we have.
I'd love to have a red passion flower.
