On Benign Neglect

I left my orchids at home without care when I left for winter break.  And while I am concerned about what I will find when I come home in a couple days, I expect the orchids to fare a week+ of benign neglect without any trouble.  

To help reduce dehydration in the plants, I turned down the heating in the apartment, and had someone water them for me one week after I left.  This hasn't stopped my sleeping brain from coming up with fantastical scenarios of what I may find upon my return.  Only a few more days before I can see for myself how the plants fared after my two week absence.
