Going on holidays usually means your houseplants have to fend for themselves.
Underwatering is one of the most common ways you can kill a plant. Luckily, there are a couple of methods you can set up to give your shrubs a fighting chance.
Three ways your plants can water themselves while you are on holiday
This method involves wetting a capillary mat in a tray and placing your plants on top. They should take care of themselves for 14 - 21 days.
Using cotton wicks, place one end in your plant and the other end in a container of water that is higher than your plant's pot. The water will slowly make its way from the water to the plant, keeping the soil moist while you are away.

All you need is an empty bottle. Cut the bottle in half, place multiple holes in the lid, bury in your pot and fill with water. The water should slowly seep out, keeping your plant watered while you are away.
