Condensation Trap
One of the simpler ways to gather readily drinkable water is called a condensation trap. Simply, it uses a clear plastic bag (this may be a polyethelene bag or ziplock bag). Place the bag over the foliage with the mouth tightly closed against the steam/branch with one corner of the bag pointing downward to collect the condensed evaporation. Choose the biggest and most lush vegetation as this is the healthiest. Plants tend to release less around mid-day when they try to reserve moisture in the hot sun than during the afternoons and evenings. The same principle can be applied to whole bushes if your bag is big enough.
