chlorine water
    #1647034 - 06/20/03 03:36 AM (13 years, 4 months ago)

Can I water my cyan patch with straight tap water? I was wondering if the chlorine might have some negative affect on the mycelium. I have filtered water I can use but its kind of expensive to waste so if I can use tap water I will.

I water it with straight tap water and it doesn't seem to hurt.

Normal tap water shouldn't contain very high levels of chlorine, and low chlorine concentrations won't hurt the mycelium. Using filtered water seems unnecessary. Moreover, I'm no filtered-water-specialist, but it seems to be that by filtering water, chlorine actually is not filtered out, as the chlorine is in solution. You would need a VERY fine filter to filter out the chlorine ions.

If it is hard water or well water then it is recommended that you use distilled water or boil it and let cool to room temp then use it but if you have good tap water yes it is fine
