Answer . Ants, as any other insects may get all their water needs trough food supply. If there is any more need than that they find other source of water. (for example ants do not react to clean, dry sugar, thay can only absorb it in water solution). Depends also on the actual ant species.
The amount of water needed in a greenhouse depends on the size ofthe greenhouse and the amount of irrigation it has. Plants in agreenhouse generally need far less water than regular plants.
A cactus gets its water from its roots . Whatever moisture is available in soil may be taken in by the cactus plant's shallow roots, and sent up to the stem for the photosynthetic interaction with the sun. A cactus also gets its water from the pores in its stem. The pores accept moisture in the f…orm of water vapor.. (MORE)
Yes, like any other plant it contains water. If split open you should be able to get a liquid of some kind (Be careful, it could be poisonous).
All dogs have differing needs determined by size and activity. If your dog is an "inside and outside" dog then you should provide water in both locations. I use a quart size inside and a gallon size outside. Clean and fill containers daily.
most lions drink water daily if available you should know that by the way but they can normally go four or five days without water. lions also get water from the prey they eat(you should also know this.)
How much of the cactus plant is water depends upon the size of the cactus and the amount of water in moving, processing and stored forms. But no matter the cactus' size and regardless of how much or little water that it holds, the cactus devotes over 90% of its inside body parts to handling, circu…lating and building up supplies of water.

Depends on the size of tree. :p I don't know who i am. :) :)
Depends on how many goldfish you have. You don't want to over crowd ur tank or fish bowl. And make sure you put somethin that makes bubbles in the tank so that there will be plenty of oxygen in the tank
This would be variable depending on season, ambient temperature, age, weight and even breed of chicken. Rule of thumb would be a half litre of water per bird per 24 hour period but all other factors would influence the need and they could consume more. Layers need more than average meat birds to c…ompensate for water lost to egg production. (MORE)
Not much, it takes most of its moisture from the air. You can water it a small amount in winter, and as much as you want in the summer.
a lot because cactuses are desert plants and in the desert there is very little shade witch resolves in a lot of sun

There are many types of small round cacti, but two are the prickly pear cactus and the barrel cactus.
As is the case with all living organisms, a cactus plant can't live without water. Specifically, it needs water to take in the nutrients that it needs to live . Minerals and trace elements in the soil only can be taken in dissolved form by a plant's roots. No water means no nutrients. Additionally…, the dissolved nutrients are needed for the photosynthetic interaction with sunlight . Sunlight and dissolved nutrients yield energizing photosynthetic products such as starches and sugars. So no nutrients means no photosynthetic products and therefore no life sustaining activities within a cactus plant. (MORE)
A cactus plant disintegrates when it gets too much water, because of its tissues. Its tissues aren't set up to work with continuous or large amounts of water . Instead, they're adapted to get as much of the infrequent and insubstantial amounts of water that they can from a bright, drab, dry, extrem…e, harsh desert environment. Overwatering and waterlogging cause cactus tissues to blacken, rot, and die . (MORE)
cactus's need minimal water and if you under or over water the can die. you should water a cactus once every 8 to 9 days if 60 degrees or more(inside or out), and should water it every 12 to 13 days in the fall or winter(inside), keep in mind that you should give the cactus 5-6 drops of food (fertil…izer) each water. you can buy the cactus food (fertilizer) at you local plant store. Cacti should be watered whenever the soil has dried out, if you water them to much they will get root rot. When it comes to cacti its a good idea to water them sparingly than to much, they can thrive on small amounts of water but will die from to much water. (MORE)
Yes they do. Depending on the type of cactus, tells you how much water they need.
It depends upon how huge the cactus is. But generally, a huge cactus can fill more than 90% of its insides with water, nutrient solutions, and energizing photosynthetic products. More than 90% of its parts is devoted to moving, processing, and storing water. In fact, both figures hold true, be the… cactus among the hugest or the smallest. (MORE)
it need less amount of water as it is a deserted plant and have a waxy layer of cuticle which reduce the loss of water.
A small cactus is taken care of in the same way as a larger cactus plant, but on a smaller scale. It's particularly important to monitor levels of heat, light, and moisture; and degrees of competition from other vegetation. Especially important is care against excessive watering, lighting and chil…ling. Also important is repotting every couple years, into pots that aren't much wider than the plant's width. The general rule is a pot 1 inch/2.5 centimeters and 2-4 inches/5-10 centimeters wider than a plant that's respectively less or more than 6 inches/15 centimeters across. (MORE)
Yes , a cactus needs to be watered. Specifically, cactus plants tend to grow in areas characterized by infrequent rainfall and low soil moisture levels. They therefore are drought tolerant and have low water demands. But they still need water just as other living organisms. It is just that cactus… plants have learned how to survive on little water.

That would depend on the amount of rain that falls and the seasonof the year. If it is during the summer and a substantial amount ofrain falls, the cactus will absorb as much water as it can whilethe soil is still damp. It may not have another opportunity toreplenish its reserves again for some time…. (MORE)

Cacti do need water they just handle it differently. They are adapted by nature to store it in their system and use it as they need it.
the cactus includes small and spiky leaves that reduce evaporation of water. It also prevents loss of water. The cactus has also a thick and juicy stem that stores water. .
Depends on the cacti, but not much because their bodies store the water. They're prickly because they need to protect their bodies because animals would try to break them open to get the juiciness of the cacti.
There are a lot of variables that will affect the answer to your question. For example, what kind of grass? How high do you mow? How often do you mow? What kind of soil? How much natural rainfall? How much wind? How hot is it? What is the humidity? What quality water? How often do you fertilize? Wha…t kind of irrigation? Water pressure? Your best bet might be to experiment. For example, I water for 5 minutes every other day, and my lawn looks great. I will probably increase the time a little if the lawn looks dry as we get more into summer, and reduce it in the fall. Go by how your lawn looks. If you water too much, you are wasting water and you will promote fungal diseases. If it looks too dry, then increase it a little. (MORE)

In cactus the leaves are reduced to spines in order to prevent water loss through transpiration though the stomata.Besides,the stem is also covered by a waxy coating which prevents water loss.Thus,cactus requires very less amount of water in order to survive
Water the bulbs lightly on alternate days. Do not over water them. Do not water saffron crocuses when they are in their dormant stage, from approx. April to September.
A cactus has roots just as do other plants. These roots absorb water from the soil when it is available and store water in their tissues for ties of drought.
How much water a dog needs depends upon the size of the dog, its level of activity, its diet, and the temperature and humidity of the dog's environment.
Putting on Scot turf builder with weed killer. How much water do u put on and before or after it is on.
because of its thornes that prevent any predators from eating the plant , ribs create shade for the plant so that not much water is lost by the heat of the sun and finally the roots are closer to the ground so that the plant will absorb rain water quickly as soon as it hits the ground.
As our body is made up of 70% water, we need approximately 7 - 8 glasses per day. But dont forget that most foods do contain fluids so i'm sure you wont need that much. Keep On Drinking. jet
This is highly dependent on breed, weight, type of work, air temp/humidity, salinity of feed, etc. Thus there is no definite answer, especially in terms of actual volume, of the amount of water that a horse needs.
