    That also surprised me, but he just meant that's what someone who doesn't know would ask and that he's going answer it. I need sleep.

    This seems like a good topic to resurrect (sp?:confused:). I just bought a new RO system and it's really worth it for me. The installation was... well, that's another story. Sometimes my intelligence is dwarfed by idiots. If I could only follow instructions. Last resort... break out the manual.

    as I need at least about 10 gallons a day!!!!!!
    and rain water that I can collect is hold a week or two
    there are 2 ways one at summer time is collect the water from the air condition units at home and second is RO system that do a great job. you just have to remember to change the filters in time (great help is to have a TDS meter).

    Are distilled water and de-ionised water the same thing? As I am using de-ionised water...

    They are not the same thing but both are acceptable for your plants.
    Most of the impurities in your water are ions and deionization removes these impurities through an ion exchange process.
    Distillation creates steam and then condenses the steam in a separate location leaving most impurities behind.

    In simple terms of course because I don't know much more... [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    This is an issue that will never go away. [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    So it is best to deal with it as needed.

    I agree that RO Filters and Rain water are 2 other great sources of water for your plants.

    And Dyflam, you aren't alone....it took many a hour and beer to get that thing hooked up [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Bubblegirl, what are the conditions that your plant is gowring in?

    Water is a factor ....it does take some time for it to go down. ...

    Besides water, the next best thing you can do for your plant is to give it lots of light!! Not enough light and lots of water will create mold....that will kill as well.

    Also, make sure that your plant NEVER dries out.....if it dries it dies!
