There is a good chance my photoperiod in the tent will be ready for harvest in late August when we happen to also be out of town on vacation for 7 days.
I am not excited about having someone coming in to water them one time mid-week while we are gone.
So… Are there any significant negative effects to the quality of my weed if I don’t have it watered and I just then come home instead to a dried out and possibly dead plant that I was going to harvest then anyway??
We will be gone 11 - 12 days and had to figure something out. The plants are 6 weeks into 12/12, in coco and only 2 gallon pots. They would be bone dry in two days. I just set up an S-Plant watering system. Nothing fancy. It worked on a trial basis. I will have it run for 3 minutes every 4 hours. I am trying to give each of the 4 plants around 2.3 liters a day.
You will need to do a dry run to see what settings work. With that size pot I would use 3 or 4 drippers. I used 2 each in the little 2 gallon pots. I didn’t want to create runoff so I water less at a time but more often.
I also used the glass bulbs jabbed two in each pot the morning i left. Plants a little wilted when i returned but a good watering an back to normal.
As @Storm mentioned Water good before you leave An add bulbs.
