    I had a Ventricosa sit in a deep saucer of tap water when I was away from college a few years ago. I was leaving for about 3.5 weeks, so I bought a saucer as deep as the pot and filled it to the brim with water before I left. I also filled all the pitchers with water.

    I came back after winter break and the plant looked fine. The saucer was empty, but it produced a ton of new leaves.
