TOPIC: Using artesian water

Using artesian water 2 years 9 months ago #16848

I have a quick question. Can you use Artesian water to water a bonsai? Usually I have an extra bottle of Fiji water or VOSS (Norwegian artesian) left over at my office, and I don't trust our tap water as I don't know if it's well water or reservoir water. I'm in Texas, so both of those are very very different and neither are very good for any plant in general. The pH on the Fiji is 7.7, and it contains 93mg/L of Silica, 18mg/L of Calcium, 15mg/L of Magnesium, and 152mg/L of Bicarbonates for a total of 222 mg/L of dissolved solids. I'll be adding Superthrive to the water as well. I have a 6-7 y/o sweet plum and my office mate has a Money tree.

Thanks!

Just use any kind of water. Don't worry too much about it. If you can drink it. the plant will live.
