Hi ppl I use bottled water on my amnesia haze auto I all ways wanted to use RO water but thought it was to much of a job buying everything and setting it up for one plant. So just used bottled water but found out a fish shop in my area sells reverse osmosis water 25l for about €2.50 so thinking about stopping the bottle stuff and switching stright to RO water will that have any negative impact on the plant at all . I wonder hmmmmm any info much appreciated.
Shouldn’t have any negative impact at all buddy. Just keep checking Ppms and pH like normal and you’ll be just fine
Depending on growing method shouldn’t be any ill effects I assume you are feeding and ph correcting your water bottled will have a different start ph than RO which is normally very close to 7
If you have a refrigerator with a filter and you’re not hooked up to chlorinated city water I would check the pH and ppms of your own filtered water.
I bought about 12 gallons of RO drinking water and my guess is they add back in a little hardness for taste because the pH was about 7 but the ppms were 100. For reference the ppm of my fridges filtered water is only about 120-130.
