Hello!

Just looking for some ideas how to keep my plants happy and watered while on a trip. Last time I was gone for 9 days I just put them in a tray with half an inch of water and they were perfectly happy when I got back. This time I'm gonna be gone for 12. Think that's pushing it? Should I be safe if i leave them in a little extra water like maybe 3/4 an inch?

What's the longest you've left your plants without having someone water them?

Leaving your plants in some water should be fine. There aren't many plants I think that would rot that quickly. What plants is it that you're leaving?

Various nepenthes hybrids and a few species. 12 in total. They're all windowsill plants so at least I wont have to worry about high temps or blowing fans causing too much evaporation.
