First, water the plants thoroughly. Then place a towel at the bottom of a bathtub or a sink and fill with about two inches of water. Sit the plants in the tub or the sink and they’ll soak up the water gradually.

    This one is for my daughter who gets upset for every plant I buy because she knows it is just going to die! Just this morning she kept saying, “Mom just buy the fake ones, you know you will forget to water it!” I may not be going on vacation but I can still make sure the are watered! Well my darling Alyssa this one is for you!
