Keeping this in view, what kind of water makes plants grow faster?
The best water for plants, and the type of water that tends to make them grow fastest, is rain water, because it is purer than tap water or even well water.
Secondly, does the type of water affect plant growth? They derive their nutrients from soil or, in hydroponics, nutrient-rich water. Plants also need water for cellular function. The type of water used, both in soil gardening and in hydroponics, can affect plant growth.
Beside above, do plants grow better with tap water or distilled water?
Why Distilled is Better than Tap Water Tap water contains chemicals, such as chlorine, that are used to treat the public water supply. These chemicals are damaging to plants. If you have hard water, you will want to use distilled water for your house plants. Some plants are very sensitive to the minerals in hard water.
Is bottled water safe for plants?
Distilled bottled water is sometimes recommended for houseplants when the build-up of salts that occur naturally in tap water causes problems with plant growth. Distilled water contains none of the salts or minerals found in common tap water.
