There are many drought-resistant indoor plants that don’t need a whole of lot watering and can go for weeks without a little moisture.  That’s especially good if you’re planning to go on vacation for awhile.

A snake plant can go for weeks and can tolerate low to bright light.

A pony tail palm can also survive a missed a watering or two for a few weeks and is a very drought-tolerant plant.
