Let’s face it, many of us started a home jungle in the wake of quarantine. It wasn’t intentional and it wasn’t necessarily bad—lord knows that bringing the outdoors inside during lockdown had a stabilizing effect. But the plant revolution happened because of how much time people were spending at home. Now that your life might be a little more active (or you’re just getting a little lazier), you might be wondering how to water your plants when you are away.

Welp, there are actually different drip irrigation systems that can step in during your absence. Some are highly sophisticated and can take the wheel on watering for three months at a time. Others are stick-and-leave-’em options that work if you want to keep your plants alive with little maintenance. Whatever your botanical flex is, we have you covered below.
