Watering Plants While Away from Home

If I am going away for a weekend, I worry about my 'plant friends'. I either leave them in a dishpan 1/2 filled with water, water the plants thoroughly then add a few ices cubes to the top of the soil to melt slowly, or use this little trick I created!

I cut out the bottom of empty drink pouches and fill them with water. I like to shorten the straw size since it needs to be under the water level to drain slowly into any potted plants.

I also always use a skewer to make a hole in the soil before placing the straw into the hole. That way no soil clogs up the straw's opening!

You can usually hide the pouch so it doesn't look unsightly. :D

I believe a 2 liter bottle can be used in the same way.
