Watering – when we leave for a short time

Some indoor plants cannot be forgotten even during a short trip, because they may then get sick and dry up.

Old newspapers will help us with irrigation. Newsprint is very good at absorbing water and retaining water and can act as a seepage mat.

In a tray or in a shallow one, but wide, Place a layer of newspapers in the container and pour plenty of water over it. We put pots with flowers on the newspapers. Water seeps under the newspapers,
and plants arranged in this way absorb the bottom of the pots (preferably ceramic, but they can also be plastic, if they have large holes in the bottom).
