Condensation surface modification was an important research direction to realize droprise condensation and erhance heat transfer. In order to explore the condensation process and mechanism of droplets on the hydrophobic surface, the condensation process of droplets on the natural Donghu lotus leaves with tilt angle of 30°,60° and 90° were studied. The results show that the tilt angle had a significant effect on the droplets condensation behavior on Donghu lotus leaves hydrophobic surface. Increasing the tilt angle would short the detachment time of condensate droplets. The growth rate of droplets increased with the increase of hydrophobic surface tilt angle. And the condensation droplets diameter also decreased with the increase of incl ination angle.
