care for plants in gritty mix over vacation
I recently killed a lovely moss from underwatering, and I realized I need to plan for a two week vacation away from my plants and 4 feet of snow.
I have in 1-1-1 gritty mix the following plants: 2"tall jade start; small citrus start; gaultheria (wintergreen, a hardy groundcover) in 1 qt pots (an overwintering experiment with plants bought in January;) amaryllis in bloom;and some very small cyclamen I don't care much about.
Generally, how do you care for plants that like more moisture, like gaultheria, that are not going to be watered for two weeks? They are in plastic pots.
And Mike, hope to be in touch about the plant food when I get back!
