    Really, all ya need to do is instruct your grandmother to water with store bought distilled water and do it when the the containers are dry, which will be like every few days. Other than that.... leave 'em alone!

    What are they? Some might not notice you're gone. By the way, when I have to leave my plants for a while, I move them out of the sun to reduce stress.

    You could get an ultrasonic humidifier to run next to them - that will supply a more reliable humidity source then misting which, unless you're misting into a closed terrarium, is only a 15 minute solution to a 24 hour problem . You'll have to make sure she understands how to fill the humidifier and that it needs to stay running until you get back. Most any CPs that's not a Nep should be able to sit in a tray of water until you get back - then you can tell her if the tray dries up just fill it back up.
