Start saving your plastic disposable bottles, milk jugs, etc. Fill them with with water and put into the freezer. On the day that you're leaving, drill a tiny hole in the bottom of each one, then set one by each plant so that as the ice melts - it drips water into the container. Covering each bottle/jug with something to slow down the rate at which the ice melts would certainly be best....
