    Default Wet or dry medium?

    Hi again. I'm going on vacation next week, for a month, and I'm taking my plants to my parents' house, a 2 hours drive away. My question is: should I water them before or after they arrive?

    They should be fine for two hours. Water when you arrive so that you do not have a mess in your car from leaking pots.

    Cheers,

    Thanks for your advise Bruce. I hope they will be ok, as the temps here in Romania are around 86 degrees these days. Good luck I have air conditioner in my car.
