What water should be used to water indoor flowers

Indoor plants need to be watered regularly, especially if they are used to hot and humid climates. Appropriate conditions at home will ensure good growth, development and flowering of the flowerpot.

This is also influenced by water quality, as harmful impurities such as chlorine and heavy metals can lead to the death of flowers. OBOZ.UA found out how to purify water to ensure high-quality watering.

Most often, owners use ordinary tap water to moisten the soil in the pot. But it contains many impurities that affect the growth of indoor plants. If you live in a house and have access to a well, you shouldn't use such water either, as it has a large amount of minerals that negatively affect flowers.

Even distilled water reduces plant growth because it does not contain salts, minerals, and vitamins that are vital for abundant and lush flowering.

Water purification

To provide the plant with good conditions for growth, you need to purify the water before watering. You do not need to buy special equipment for this. It is enough to collect water in any container and leave it for a day to settle. Then the chlorine will evaporate by half and the lime will settle.

You can also boil water and wait for it to cool. This will help get rid of harmful impurities.

In winter, leave the water in a bottle or glass in the cold. Wait until the liquid freezes. Then drain the remaining liquid, defrost the ice, and water the flowerpots with it.
