    Default orchid self watering device

    Hello everybody,

    I am excited to join the group.
    I will be traveling and I am worried about my vanda orchids that i just bought since I am going away for two weeks. I am looking for an automatic orchid watering device.
    I am wondering if you have any experience with this and what would you recommend.

    You can find a nice inexpensive drip hose set up at many of the big box stores and hardware stores. Get a timer and you won't have to worry about anyone turning it off and on for you. The hardest part about setting it up is putting the dripline together. You'll need some nice plyers or a strong set of hands to get it all done. Hope you enjoy your trip.

    Visit your local hardware or big box store and tell the folks there what you are trying to do. I bet someone in the garden center will get you set up asap!

    cheers,

    I would even say a hydroponic store or indoor growing store could help
