regardless of the water used, you will want to boil it, most bottled water
is nothing more than filtered tap water

Generally bottled water is suggested if your supply is low quality and you have trouble with using it.

You want sterile water for your spore syringe, so you have to boil it. Bottled water is not sterile. As prisoner says, its quite possibly not even spring water most of the time anyway.

Technically you shouldn't have to boil distilled water but I don't trust anything that comes in plastic jugs.

I wouldn't ever make a syringe without boiling the water first.



Boil.  :sun:

I agree, I would always boil. Also incase the spores didnt work out cause of something in the bottled water in which case u'd have to sit round a couple of days till you noticed that the jars arent colonizing and then you'd have to start all over again. Just boil it takes like 2 seconds anyway.

Distilled water is NOT necessarily sterile. It is just mineral free
