    Is it ok to use dehumidifier water to water vft's? A friend of mine said it was almost the same as distilled. Any truth to this?

    Dehumidifier water is fine as long as the coils and collection tray for the condensation are kept clean. Otherwise the algae and molds the were growing in the dehumidifier could be put onto your plants when you water with it.

    I use it to water my plants, but you do need to keep it clean. If you have any "slime" on the side of your holding tank you have a problem and should boil the water and let it cool down before you water. This will kill any bad stuff.
