Leaving for 10 days

I'm leaving for ten days, and I have a ten gallon planted tank.
I have two bettas, but they will not be in the tank as I am taking them with me. However, my plants will be staying of course. Do I leave the aquarium lights on for those 10 days, or do I leave them off? I'd buy a timer, but my local Petsmart didn't get there shipment in on Wednesday so they have like nothing, and I leave Tuesday. What would be best for the plants?

I'm also worried about an algae bloom while I'm gone?

You can get a timer from any store, Walmart probably has them maybe. Home Depot type stores would more than likely have them too.
