I am a university student who rents an apartment to live in. Because I study abroad, there are times that I return back at my parent's home. The time I spend there varies from a week up to two months in the summer.
So the question I want to ask is this: given the above time I spend away from my apartment, what would be a good plant to buy? I obviously need one that has the ability to remain alive for up to two months without me taking care of it, if possible. The reason is that I have no auto-watering system since I live in an apartment.
If there are any ways I should take care of my plant before going away, please make sure to note them as they would help out a lot. I have a balcony where I will keep the plant most of the time, but for the two summer months, I don't know what to do.
