    Who do you trust with your plants?

    What do you do with your plants while you are away? Who do you trust to take care of your plants? Can you trust you family with your plants?

    I'm out of town 4-6 days a week, every single week for my job. (Yes, it sucks to say the least!)

    I make sure I water all my indoor plants (neps on the growrack) right before I leave so she doesn't have to. I refill the humidifier before I leave, but it only lasts 3 days, so I taught her how to refill it just in case. She doesn't seem to mind.

    I also water my minibogs right before I leave, but due to humidity usually below 20%, it doesn't take more than a couple days for them to dry out also, so once again she comes to the rescue! She's told me if I want to grow the hobby I need a different job! I think she's right - I'm barely home to enjoy them. I don't think I'd trust anybody else with the plants.

    I never am away for more than a day or two when the plants are indoors, so there's no worry there. If I'm away in the summer, I either ask a neighbor or pay a neighborhood kid to water. My fig tree needs the most watering and, since my neighbor is a Turk, he's only too happy to help keep it productive. We usually get rain, but it's nice to have an insurance policy. I don't have them bother with special water though, just what comes out of a hose.

    Nobody! No one else around here knows anything about them and could care less. Simple instructions are ignored and plants die from neglect... and tap water.
