Hi, just a quick question about my palm trees. I had someone water my palms with 5 gal bucket on each tree, BUT , they used softened water , will it kill them? What should I do? Or is that one time going to be ok?
Any info appreciated . Thanks, Dan

You have a legitimate concern, but one watering will not likely cause harm to your plants. Repeated watering with high salts content softened water can be detrimental.

Water heavily now to leach the salts as best possible, and then resume with your regular watering program.
