Dim or raise the lights, cut the photo period to maybe 5 or 6 hours.
Do a water change and dose before you leave.
Do a trim before you leave too and leave any stem plants that you cut floating at the top of the tank to further reduce light and potential algae.

remember light is the gas pedal for your tank growth
you could also leave some declorinated water for top offs if you want to as well.
But Chlorophiles suggestions are spot on and exactly what i do on holidays as well. and every thing is always fine when i return.
