Going to be out of town for 2-3 weeks in late July and need to come up with a solution for watering my plants. I'm in stealth mode, so having a friend or neighbor water them is out of the question. I've been looking at a bunch of auto-watering rigs on Amazon and such, but they are pricey and none really look like they are too fukking reliable. I also don't care to be fukking with all those clips, connectors and tubing. Plus, I've only found 1 that will service more than 10 plants.
The upside down soda bottle method isn't going to deliver enough H2O for my needs. Same with those ceramic watering globes.
So, what I'm thinking about doing is buying an inexpensive digital timer like this......
and hooking it up to a cheap soaker hose that I string around and can run into each pot. I can set it for a few hours a day to give the plants a good slow drink. Any other ideas?
