Can I use tap water to water my plants?

Whether you use rain water, bottled water or tap water. The main thing is to only water when needed, if over watered this will eventually result in root damage and zero growth.


As long as you don’t live in an area that has extremely acidic rain, rainwater is preferable because it's missing things like excessive minerals or disinfectant chemicals such as chlorine. Tap/bottle water is totally ok to use - rain water is just preferred.
