EI dosing and vacation time

How do you deal with EI dosing when you have to be away for a couple of weeks? Do you overdose before you leave? If so, by how much? My tank is 47 gal and heavily planted (and no fish).

I started filling up the tank as soon as it drained out, so the plants were exposed to the air only for a few minutes. They didn't dry up at all.
