Hi, I'm going on vacation for a week & have no one to water my Phals while I'm gone. They will most likely be in bloom in early Feb when I leave. Will they be okay? I'm worried that the buds/flowers will fall off!

The 3" pots are on a 5 day schedule now & the 4" & larger on a 10 day schedule. I worry more about the 5 day schedule ones. They will be so dry!!

They're grown under lights. 2 bulb T5 fixtures.

Please tell me they'll be okay!!! :)

Thanks!

they will be fine. Even better if you can raise the ambient humidity to over 50% by using a humidifier. You could stand them in a saucer of water about 1/2 in deep too.

I would water your plants very well one day before. Then turn off light and fan. Make sure room temperature is 65F or warmer, and hope for the best.
