    I have been watering my plants with well water for about two years now,no problems yet.If you live in a city I would not use tap water,without getting it tested first.It will cost a lot of money to keep it watered with jugs of disstilled water,thats for sure!

    This has been my question for years. I think it's financially impossible to keep a bog garden if your yearly rain amounts dont permit. You'd use so much water everyday in the midwest... I dont even want to think about it, hehe.

    It'll cost you over 100 though. Not too bad if you have a job I guess. I need to get one myself, as it will save you money down the line.
