    Is well water bad for cp's. I have been using it and my plants are really healthy. I also boil the water and let it cool then use it to water my plants with it. Does boiling the water do any good?
    I didn't think well water was bad because it doesn't contain any chemicals or chlorine.
    pepperoni, and green peppers, mushrooms, olives, chives.

    but it does contain minerals which are bad for cps,cheapest alternative is distilled water.which is cheaper than a dollar per gallon.that is the best and cheapest alternative.

    Yes, well water could work ONLY if it is low in minerals. If the kind you have does have a lot of minerals then I would suggest to stop using it.

    Boiling it makes it worse... It evaporates some of the water, leaving a higher concentration of whatever minerals there are in the water to start with...
