I’m going away for a week and cannot find anyone to water my plants. What can I do to keep them happy?
Let them sip through straws.” Put a big bucket of water in your bathtub and set your plants around the bucket. Cut ordinary household string into pieces long enough that you can put one end in the soil and one end on the bottom of the bucket. Your plants will drink enough water through these β€œstraws” to survive your temporary absence.”
