MAKE: water water

This weekend we three are off to the beach! We are joining the rest of the family for our cousin's wedding and could not be more excited.

However, while I'm gone I have to find a way to keep my plants alive. You see, they've been through a lot since I bought them this spring. I've definitely pushed them to the brink of life a few times, but they're still holding strong. I am making it my goal to actually remember to at least give them some water prior to leaving...

However, I recently learned about using a towel to keep them alive. Has anyone tried it? Apparently you just put a towel in a tub or dish, fill it with two inches of water, and put the already-watered plant on the towel. It should keep them fresh for more than a week.

The ones on my porch are way too large to lift, but the ones around my house might benefit from this kind of TLC before I leave. I'll let you know how they look when I get back from the trip!
