Begin by watering plants thoroughly. If you like, place plants in large saucers that will hold about 1" of water. This will keep most moisture-loving plants for as much as a week.
Move plants out of sunny windows and into cooler areas of the house. If you have large plants that you can't move, close the drapes so the plants won't be in bright light. Moving plants into low-light areas will reduce their need for water. Group plants by their care needs. Place moisture-loving plants in one area, such as the bathtub. Place plants that require less water together to avoid confusion if someone will come by to care for them.
