    Set them in the bath tub with a couple inches of water, works great

    Hi Angelo. You can purchase glass watering globes. You fill them with water and put them in the pots. The water will go down to the plant as needed.

    Orchids will be fine,set the african violets on plastic try and allow them to soak the water form the bottom

  • I do the bathtub trick. Close the door, the humidity will keep them hydrated enough, it is winter, they will be fine!

    I place them in the sink with cotton rope in the water then stick the other part halfway into the plants dirt that way they do not get too much water.

    Use a dry cleaning bag to cover them and keep humidity up.
    Water them well and let the excess drain. place in indirect sun or AM sun.. not a hot location, though... keep room temp about 65 deg. Cooler temps slow thier activities.
