    I goto Wallmart and buy them at 49cent per gallon. Is there any place cheaper than that? 2 gallons lasted for roughly 2+ months I believe. I only water 2 carnivorous plants, 1 fairly large pitcher plant and 1 small venus flytrap.

    Just wanted to know how much you guys bought water for and how much you use in a month?

    if u r gonna get serious with cp growing, i suggest a RO filter. Most can make 50 gallons of RO water a day.

    I use a Sears Deluxe Water Purifier. It's a countertop water distiller. It isn't too speedy at 1 gallon/4 hours, but it works for me. I bought it for $179. You can get it for much cheaper on eBay, though.

    I use it for my family as well as my CPs. After seeing what is left of the tap water after the distiller is done with it makes me never want to drink tap water again. There's about a tablespoon of yellow-brown water left in the boiler after the distillation process. Yuck. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_k_ani_32.gif[/img]

    you might want to test your own water out first. i use well water (we have two large filters in the basement for it, though) for years and i've never, ever, ever had a problem with it. i never get mineral deposits,and all my plants grow fabulously.

    I buy distilled water at Walmart, but I only use it to leach out the top of the mix in my Drosera and Utricularia collection. I use about 5-10 gallons per day to refill my trays so rain water is the way I go it.
