Bluemats (?) makes an auto watering system…

How far into flower?

What kind of medium?

Me personally I water them heavy and let go… if they die, they die :rofl:. But normally my plants go too long between waterings anyway so they are pretty used to it if you ask me

About week nine flower. FFOF soil.


Soil and week 9… yea outside of some kinda autowatering life hack… (google it, I think even a plastic 2 liter bottle can be DIY’d).

A heavy watering is about the best I got for ya. Someone with experience in such will be along shortly hopefully

How many plants?
How close to harvest will it / they be when you have to leave?
Maybe timing will work out to give it a good soak, program your lights to go off a few days before you return and then harvest. Wishful thinking?
I may be in the same place in a couple of months. Have not started looking yet.

At the time of departure timing could work out maybe, for the 2 plants in late flower. Will also have others in early flower by then. Probably gonna soak em. What about adjusting lights down a bit? Or is that gonna shock em?

Put a pump in a bucket of water and run hoses to each pot have timer for pump set for 5 or 10 minutes to come on 4 days after you leave.

Always a wrinkle.
If I needed a self watering aide I was thinking about something like this. I have not really looked into them. It is something I will consider.
