    Default Vacation care

    I will be going on vacation the first part of July. Living in Utah, the temp in the house could be 75 to 85 and low humidity. We will be gone 2 weeks. I have no one that I can ask to water my plants (2) while I am gone.

    What can I do at the house to keep my orchids in good condition while I am gone?

    Thank You

    (moved this thread to the General Culture forum)

    For two weeks . . . they should probably be ok, but it depends on what they are and what they're potted in. So what kind of orchids are they, and how often do you normally water them?

    Actually, since you only have two: if you can't get somebody to come by to water them, maybe you could drop them off with somebody responsible who doesn't run through the house with a running salad shooter and might be willing to water them if it doesn't mean a trip to your place?
