I got really attached to my house plants and am wondering if anyone has tips to keep them alive when travel resumes? I don’t want them to feel neglected.

This is so wholesome. 🥺

I’ll hold off on any advice though since you actually want to keep your plants alive. Not the way it usually goes for my plants...

🥺

I feel this. I drove my plants to my parents for the holidays instead of flying bc I didn’t want them to die. Going forward, if I’m gonna be gone for more than a week, I’m going to drop them off at a friends.

Bring them with you when you travel

My two cents is that’s it’s often easier for a plant to recover from under-watering than it is over-watering. Try to water them half as often and see how they do—if you notice that they’re limp and falling over, then you’ve actually waited too long, and pick a slightly more frequent watering schedule. That being said, plant watering “schedules” change with seasons too best practice is to dig your finger an inch or so into the pot and see if it’s damp.

Thank you for the tip

I’m not sure what kind of plants that you have but they should be able to last a few days without water. I typically water the night before or day of depending on when I leave and when I get back. But my travel is Monday through Thursday or something shorter.

Ask a trusted neighbour? I’ve done pet sitting and would be thrilled to plant sit. As long as you leave very clear instructions.

Also soil, pot, ambient humidity matter.

If you’re a hardcore traveler you could set up a little dripline system with a timer. Otherwise bulbs or self-watering pots could help

So I’d start by planning a “trip”. Water the plant normally and make sure it’s got sunlight but not direct sun as it will dry out more. Make sure the space is heated/cooled appropriately. Then leave it for a day. Check health/appearance. Check back daily, etc. see what seems to work and when the plant starts to look stressed. When you return avoid over compensating. probably lots of content creators out there who can advise per type of plant. Nutrition is important to keep plants hardy and strong.

My neighbor dropped her plants off at my place when she was away for two weeks lol I kept them
Mostly alive

I took plastic bottles. One liter water bottles. Poke holes in the lid. Several holes. Turn each one upside down for each plant. You can use bigger or smaller bottles more holes less holes. Turn one upside down for a night in a pot or bowl and calculate the water flow. Pur planta near the window

If I have a flight that leaves at 10pm ET and arrives in London at 10:30am (local time), what meals do you get served on the flight? It’s a British Airways flight.

Hi guys!

I'm currently working in a long standing tight knit team for around a year. I'm really keen to start interviewing for other organisations for more progression. The only issue is references, I know if I ask any of my small team to be my reference it'll spread and I'm not sure how they will respond.

Is it ok to use references from my previous job (professional services)? Have others encountered this? And if so how did you approach this situation.
