    What kind of plants? If they are Dionaea, Sarracenia, or any plants that sit in a tray of water, just make sure the tray they are sitting in has water and they will be fine. As for Nepenthes and other plants, just water them good just before you leave and they should be fine. Then water them as soon as you get back (if they need it).

    Do you mean Sarracenia 'Judith Hindle'? Or possibly Nepenthes 'Judith Finn'? There is no Nepenthes 'Judith Hindle.'

    As for those plants...
    Just water them well before you leave and they should be fine. Thats what I always do with mine when I go on trips for a few days. (In fact, I'm on one of those trips now.)

    The first three will do fine in a tray of water for five days. Just generously water the Nepenthes before you leave.
