Water type??

Post by *Barracuda_50* on Tue Oct 18, 2011 7:32 am

What type water do you use for all your potted plants or non potted plants?? City tap, well, rain water or other??

I use rain water, i collect and store it for future use, here out in the woods we have well water and its just to hard for most my plants so i have always used rain water for all my house plants and non house plants, the ones out in the ground get rain water or on hot summer days when we havent had rain for long periods of time i use the rain water i have stored. Durring the winter i have stored rain water down in my winter growing plant room. Sometimes i run short durring the winter and i end up melting snow to get the water for the plants..

Hm, you won't beleive, but I rarely water my plants. I use tap water which is very BAD where I live - it is very hard (and it ruins all our coffee machines within a year!)

Yup thats what happens with our coffee makers the super hard well water we have has WAY to much iron and calcium and it clogs up our coffee maker super fast so we use distilled water for the coffee maker. We get rust stains on tubs and toilets if we dont clean them everyday.
