I have search the forums to find answers but haven’t found any, excuse me if it’s a stupid question, but complete newbie, and trying to get everything covered and understood before I start my first op.

 

i live in the uk and live in an area that has very hard water out the tap. My question is, I plan on growing with living soil and was wondering what water would be optimal to use?

would tap water be ok? Would it need to stand for 24 hours to allow contaminants to evaporate?

what type of water would be the absolute best option? Reverse osmosis? Or would I need to supplement it with minerals? I plan on using 6.5ph water.

 

Thanks guys, and happy Bunday

 

ps I love this page, looking forward to the new high on homegrown podcast. Can I get a shoutout please🤣🤣

to leave the water for 24 hours is one step

the other is: get yourself a PH tester and add Vitamine C or Lemon Juice - the right PH depends on your growing medium!

Feel free to ask as many questions as you need to. Idea

@dirteedank

when I've used bottle nutes my tap water was around the 7.5 after adding nutes it drops it to 6.5 

so my tap water was a little high, adding a tbsp of garden lime in a 15ltr pot of soil may not be idea for living soil but it will bring the water ph level down.

 

it's a good idea to leave the water standing over night before using, also giving the plants cold water is not great.
