Many people don't think twice about using tap water when taking care of plants, but distilled water is best for your plants. Distilled water is the best water for germinating seeds, sprouting, and plants of all kinds. One main reason why distilled water is preferred over tap water is that tap water contains salt, chlorine, and other chemicals that can build up in the plant's soil. If you want beautifully healthy plants, distilled water is as close as you can get to rainwater.
Distilled water is made by boiling water, letting the steam condense, and collecting the pure water for future use. This is very similar to how water evaporates, condenses, and then clean rain falls back to Earth. This process is referred to as the hydrologic cycle. In this process, clean, pure water rises as steam, while contaminants are left behind to be washed away. Our Pure Water Distillation Systems produce clean, toxin and chemical-free water. This clean water is collected in our stainless steel storage tanks or a glass jar.
Houseplants love distilled water. Potted plants are at risk for chemical buildup as there is nowhere for chemicals to go after they are introduced. Do you see a white ring buildup in the soil? This could be from salts or hard water minerals. Distilled water does not contain calcium, magnesium, or salt. Are you tired of water spots on your plant's leaves? Spray your plants with distilled water to wipe leaves off with a spot-free glossy look that will bring in the compliments.
Each plant has its own needs. Put your plant on a water and fertilizer schedule that will help your plants flourish. There are even apps that can help you track your plant care. Don't forget to re-pot your plants as needed to keep roots loose and healthy. This gives you a chance to change out soil which often contains fertilizer. Of course, don't forget the right amount of sunlight. Some plants love a lot of sun, while others don't like direct sunlight.
Do you want to get your garden started ahead of time? Germinating seeds with distilled water provides your seeds with H2O without toxins. Do you pride yourself on organic gardening? If so, don't forget to use clean, pure water. Did you know tap water can contain lead, arsenic, fluoride, chlorine, pesticides, uranium, nitrates, and even microplastics and pharmaceuticals? Why introduce these chemicals into your food supply. Drinking distilled water and using it for plants, germinating seeds, sprouting, and more makes sense.
Sprouting is a fantastic way to introduce fresh, nutrient-dense plants into your diet. They are delicious on sandwiches, salads, rice, omelets, and soups. They offer fiber and are a prebiotic for good bacteria. Make sure you use distilled water for sprouting to keep the sprouting environment clean and toxin-free. If you are sprouting as part of a healthy diet, distilled water is the cleanest, healthiest drinking water available. Your sprouts should grow without interference from chemicals found in tap water like chlorine or fluoride, not to mention unknown toxins that might be found like arsenic, lead, iron, bacteria, or viruses.
What do you think would happen if chlorine rained down onto your outdoor plants or grass? They wouldn't like it one bit! Instead of trying to get rid of problems that come with tap water, why not start with a clean slate? Use distilled water with your favorite potting soils and fertilizers for outstanding results.
