Alternative irrigation:

If we leave the plants on the terrace for some time without watering they could suffer from the lack of water, and since we are not present, we would find our plants ruined upon our return. To prevent this from happening we can use some tricks, to make sure that our plants have watering for a few days, these methods are valid only if we are away from home for 4-7 days, no more. We can cover the surface of the jars with water-based gel, easily available on the market; this gel absorbs about 10 times its volume in water, and placed on the ground, this water tends to be given to the substrate by osmosis, constantly over time, over a period of about 7-10 days. We can also use a simple plastic bottle: we make a hole in the cap, fill the bottle to the rim, and bury it, upside down, in the soil of the jar; the water will slowly come out of the bottle watering our plants.
