    Basically whatever form of purified water is easiest for you to obtain. I myself use distilled water from a dispenser in my local grocery store. Luckily it's quite cheap ( < 50 cents per gallon). You could collect rainwater, just make sure that you cover whatever containers you use when it's not raining to prevent mosquitoes from using it to breed. If you use the tray system you also want to watch for mosquito larvae, S. purpurea find them very tasty!

    RO, deionized, and distilled are comparably as good and the best. After that, it would be rainwater. Forget tap water unless it has been tested and free of mineral salts. Letting tap water sit is for chlorine removal, as in tropical fish... but not cp's.
