I did the same thing last night, but asked Agar if that was okay. The answer was that unless the water is hard you'll be fine.

It really depends on the quality of your tap water.  You can usually get a copy of the most recent water quality testing report if you go to the right places.  Either way, there's really no way of knowing if you're screwed until you've tried it.  I have well water, and an expensive as all hell water softener, so I haven't tried city water yet...

I think that if your tap water is half-decent it will be absolutely fine. People make a big deal about water, but it's really not an issue at all unless you live in one of the areas with really poor tap water supply.

I think either way it will work fine. I did it myself the first time. Worked out fine for me. I'm sure distilled is better, but all these small variables only affect things so much...it doesnt mean the poo will fail over it.

Yeah, exactly.. I figure, if anything, it's just going to give you slightly less yield or something... nothing noticeable...

I always use tap water... I just don't care that much, heh. I don't know the quality of our tap water, but I drink it sometimes and it tastes fine... if it's good enough for me, it's good enough for fungus.

;P

IMPE Tap water as opposed to distilled is like scat said just a small variable difference, but when I accidentally used tap water instead of the slimy nutrient enriched water I get out of a compost heaps I noticed a big difference on the cakes I was growing at the time, so unless you usually use compost heap H2O the difference is probably negligble

We might get glimpse's of objectivity every now, and then, but we're so inherently locked in our temporal and corporeal selves that we're irrevocably locked into subjectivity :crazy:

Yeah, that sounds about right... I bet that compost juice does wonders.
