how to deal with watering plants while on holiday? I will be gone for 1 week, 1 plant is in 8L the other in 20L coco/perlite 70:30 mix. They will roughly be 3 weeks into flower when i'm away, i've considered using 6-8 ceramic water spikes hooked up to a 5L bottle. any ideas? thx
Hello Truro ! You systeme will run out of water too soon with the ceramic water spikes , It's summer (drying) and your plant will get bigger so will drink more during your vacation. The wicking technique is good (passive hydro) but you need to put a big water container for at least 3 weeks (math will helps). My better method in that kind of situation is to ... ask your bestfriend to do it :joy: , sound simple but it is in fact :stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes: ! But seriously I would recommande you the "Tray" method , here is a link to ir : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1qeTXrj4qgE !
Here are links to tutorials : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w0M0CAKxb1c (wicking tech), https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RajhuUx4Hgg (tray tech part 2) Hope it will help a bit :grin:
