    I was just wondering which type of water is the best filtered, RO or Distilled. I have always used distilled until today I found a grocery store across town with RO water at $0.39 not bad eh?

    nahasapeemapetilon,

    I don't think either one is better than the other. If it was me I'd get the RO 'cause its cheaper. I get distilled water at 72 a gallon.

    Well i go with RO as it isn't 100% free of dissolved solids but there is like a pinhead of solids in RO water, or not even that, and this benfits the majority of my collection, nepenthes. Nepenthes need a tad of nourishment unlike most other CP's liek Saracenia and Dionaea but equally ALL CP's go for either water but if your a freak about water liek most CP people are go with distilled to be EXTRA EXTRA EXTRA extra extra safe.

    I think its usually the quality of either system. I think that aside from the build of of nasties in the pipeworks after the water is cleaned, RO has a lesser chance of being quality, as some filters may be more effective than others...
