Once a week or so these plants get their dousing, which is usually enough if it's not been too sunny. But when we go away it's another story. We rarely have the forethought to arrrange for a friend to come water them, and as a result we practically drown them in water before we leave and hope for the best outcome. Occasionally we get it.
Next time we're going to try water bulbs.
The obvious questions are, how long do they last (a weekend trip or a real holiday?), and how well do they work? Anyone out there have experience with these?
PlantMinder water bulbs comes in two different sizes and in multi-packs that contain 2 or 4. Prices range from $22.50 to $24.50.
