Balcony plant - 22 days without water

Surprised to see a completely new tomato plant already out because only seeds were planted before leaving these balcony plants all by their lonesome 22 days ago. The tomato leaves looks dry and withered but still alive.

All the rest of the pots is ok!

 

 
 
 
This pot was completely empty but some new shoots have grown. Chili plant I think..

 

The funny thing is the water bottles with tiny holes in them are still full. Guess the holes were tooo tiny.

 
 
 
The one that worked was water botles with the string wick attached.. the water very slowy seeped out. Guess that will be the preferred method to keep the plants alive next time their left alone for lone periods f time.
