    I also have a water question. Is water from a lake/pond safe for cps whether or not the lake/pond is natural or man made?

    I think it would be ok, since the water the lake/pond holds is rainwater. Make sure nothing else is being drained into or added into the pond. I know that up in Black Rock Forest, the reservoir is man-made and there are CP growing all around the reservoirs and bogs. It's one of the reservoirs that gives NYC is tap water, and some people (including me) grow their CPs with NY tap water.

    I think it would depend on where the lake/pond is located. If near farmland it might have fertilizer runoff in it. They may also have disolved minerals from the rock and soil the water runs through in the stream(s) leading into the pond/lake.

    This is where some lab person chimes in with a suggestion about having water tested for Total Dissolved solids (TDS) and salts like, Ca, K, Mg, & Na.

    Now all we have to do is wait for them to chime in and we'll know they work in a lab right? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img] <chuckle>

    Distilled is great.. it's all I use other than the occasional capture of rain water.
