    no.

    i also bought water that says processed by ozone ,advance filtration, and reverse osmosis technology. dont know if i can use those stuff or not.
    maybe..but I wouldnt risk it..sounds like they are over-compensating..sounds like some kind of fancy drinking water..just get regular distilled water...any supermarket should sell it for about $1 a gallon.

    and i found perlite.... the bag just says perlite.... its just a bunch of super light white rock thing, kinda crispy.... dont know if it has anything in it.
    dont bother..you dont need it.

    i also got a free SUPERTHRIVE, but i dont know what to use it for, i remember reading somewhere about superthrive for CP, but i dont know anything.
    all i remember is that Peter D'Amato or somewhere around that uses it.
    dont bother, you dont need it..

    IMO, you making this much harder than it needs to be!

    1. pure peat or pure LFS
    2. pure water.
    3. bright sun outdoors.

    thats it.

    put your plants in pure peat or pure LFS..dont need anything else.
    give them pure water..(distilled, rain, or RO water..if its just plain RO water it should just say that..not all this extra "ozone ,advance filtration" etc stuff..)
    the jug should say distilled or "steam distilled"..nothing else.
    or "reverse osmosis"..nothng else.
    or collect rain water.

    dont need perlite, dont need sand, dont need superthrive, dont need ozone, dont need extra humidity, dont need grow lights, dont need fancy water...

    sure, its fine to experiment with all this stuff..if you like.
    but IMO its a waste of time and money, and your plants wont care.
    they will probably be happier if you dont bother..

    ok..its probably fine..especially since it says "reverse osmosis"...
    but the "ozonation,advance filtration," would turn me off..because its not really clear what that has done to the water..once you run it through RO, its perfect, you shouldnt have to do anything else to it..UNLESS its meant to be drinking water for humans..in which case stuff could be added back in for taste..

    thats why plain old "distilled" is perfect for CPs..because its not meant for drinking water..
    its sold for medical equipment and humidifiers and irons..household appliances that need pure water that wont create scale...that pureness is what makes it perfect for CPs too..all the minerals are removed...if it says "distilled" on the jug, and nothing else, I would trust it..
    those other things make me question it..and I dont KNOW its pure..
    therefore I wouldnt risk it..its not worth harming your plants for $1 worth of water..
    just look for real, actual distilled.

    Its probably 90% odds that your jug of water is fine..
    but you dont know for sure..
    100% certainty is easy to get..so why not go for 100%?
