A little help needed on gardening…

My family is going on a short trip for about 4-5days… and our plants will be left unattended …

We’ve tried a few ways to try make a “auto-watering system” with bottles and strings. We also tried tying plastic on the opening and then poking little holes and then placing it right on top of the soil… but it seems they worked only for a while and then the water hardly flows…

I know there are many green thumbs here, anyone have any good suggestions?

thanks in advance

*Note: we can’t have stagnant water left open becuase we’ve dengue zika and malaria here (I personally gotten dengue before and it sucks!)

  1. I see it is like a watering system for hydroponic plants, and good. Have you made a small hole (maybe you can pierce it with a needle) on the top of the bottle to let air in?

    Another suggestion is that you can use a hose that you give a hole so that water can drip on each plant.
