|How can we protect the indoor houseplants while being on a long vacation for 2 months.
My biggest worry is watering the plants during the long vacation.

|I just can't think of any way to do that.
I'd try to give some away and put the rest in a shady spot outside that can get rain, and let nature take its course. Assuming non-freezing weather.
i'm pretty OK today, how are you? ;^)

|There are wick watering systems that can help extend the period between waterings, but two months is a very long time.

|I know that Summer Rayne Oakes had a Youtube video about wick watering that she does. You might search for it and see if it has any helpful information. I think it was called "Cool Watering Hacks for Houseplants".|
