I just found out that my dorm building is being closed up for my whole four week winter break. I knew we were not supposed to stay, but assumed we could get back in if we needed and that I could get back in to check/water my plants every so often. Mostly this is not a problem and my plants will come home with me for the break (not a long ride, and the same temps, so no real trauma) but I have a couple larger ones who I moved in borrowing my aunt's minivan, and would rather travel with them as little as possible... The dorm will stay moderately heated, and they are near big bright windows, so they should be fine, but I worry about water.
Does anyone have any experience with self-waterers like the ones in the link I will attach? Do they work? Is there a brand you recommend? Worst case scenario they just come home with me - no big deal, and I'd miss them anyway, but I was just curious if this was a possibility....
Here is a link that might be useful: self-waterers?
