    one more question though, some have said that now after contaminating my poor voiceless vft for 3 weeks now with boiled tap water, that my next step should be to "Flush" out all the minerals. Well, my plant is in a small mouthed, glass fish bowl, obviously with no drain hole. What would be the least invasive way to flush the soil out without putting my vft back into shock? Any suggestions?

    If your plants are not showing any ill will, then just let it go.

    Sometimes, replanting can be worse.

    Let's just see how it goes.

    All the talk about rainwater I believe is overrated. You can buy a gallon of DISTILLED WATER at any local grociery store for around $.67. At least thats what it is around here. Unless you have yuppy vft that will only drink Singing Rain or Aquafina [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    Anyway good luck and don't take my advise for absolute fact. I have only been growing mine for a little while now. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]

    OR if you wanted to try to distill your own water you can place a dish over and under a hotpot or regular pot to catch the steam generated by boiling water. That by definition IS distilled water. But to me its worth my $.67 to not wait that long and just by a whole bunch at the store.

    Here in So. California, we have water machines in front of almost every supermarket that cost between 25 cents to 50 cents per gallon.

    Just make sure you press the right button that saids "distilled water" or "salt-free", and not the "drinking water" button.

    Brita filters are too expensive!

    I used my esspresso machine once to make distilled water. Only once. It's just easier to buy it.
