You probably all know this already but. When traveling away from home and you are worried about your plants not being watered. Get some thick wool yarn, soak it so it's wet push one end into the soil and the other in a pot filled with the amount of water you need. Make sure the soil is quite moist before you insert the wet yarn. Then when you are gone, it will wick into the soil as needed
