Sorry I have no idea! But I'll be interested to hear what other people say as I'll be in the same boat soon.

Hmmm I'd be tempted just to put them in a cooler room for the week so they don't need watering. It might set them back a little but I don't think over watering and then drying out completely is wise

I would think you would be better sitting them on damp capilliary matting with a wick into a bucket of water. That will keep them watered with out it being too much or too little
I was put on this earth to accomplish a certain number of things; right now I am so far behind I will never die.
