Get a cotton or some kind of fiber rope soak it burry it in the soil have the other end in a large bucket of water
like a slow siphon drip system will work in my experience any where from 7 days to about 12 days but thats pushing it ide
personally leave my plants like this max for 8 days and turn my ballast on low so 600w to 300w 50 percent
Nice man i also am going on a trip for 6 days and i already got my drip system delivered and hooked up here's what i ordered and it was a pain in the ass to hook up at first but now is running perfect i got it to water them every other day sense my babies are in 2-3 flowering and i got 9 of em!
And the timer

Haha yeah but they don't feel like a few..their in a 3x3 and it is crowded.
I trained my dog to go in there twice a day an Piss on em then my monkey prunes and lst my plants. Lol.
Jk man I normally set up a 55 gal pump then depending on my medium I'll set up a timer to go off accordingly. Then you can set another resi to it, connected by a float switch, so when the 55 resi drops under a certain level the back up resi's pump kicks in and fills the resi that feeds your plants. Or you can set up 2x55 gal resi and split your garden in half and run one resi for one half and the other resi for the other half. I've done it both ways. I felt cooler when I did it with the float switch thou. Lol
Growing is like a jail sentence, I ain't leaving till it's done.
Autopots! they cost like $30 for the system & feeds via gravity (no electricity needed) just set & forget...have been using mine for about 3 years..
or try eBay
