Gritty Mix, how-to-water on vacation?

Hello Everyone!

I am just wondering if anyone has tips/personal experience about watering the Gritty Mix while you are gone on vacation/spring break/etc. I know that the best will be to get a friend to come, but that could be hard sometimes. Does anyone else have this problem? Especially since Gritty Mix won't usually tolerate a 1 week away time without watering!

Any tips whatsoever? Let's say, you are gone for 1 week or 2 weeks.

I'm no expert, and only have one citrus in gritty mix indoors, and it doesn't get watered very often........definitely less than once per week Your plants must be outdoors.

Get a sprinkler timer, and put them on a drip. It's really tough to overwater plants in Gritty mix.
