Tap Water Treated With Conditioner For House Plants?
Hi there, I've only recently started adopting plants in to my house and would like to know if it would be safe to use tap water treated with conditioner for example: Tetra Pond Water Balance: - Water conditioner for a natural and biological balance in ponds - Creates ideal and stable water values: stabilises pH and carbonate hardness KH while reducing phosphate - Contains trace elements, vitamins and organic substances for fish, plants and microorganisms - Boosts the self-cleaning capacity of the water - Helps improve water quality - Supports plant growth and the proliferation of useful microorganisms. I believe my area's water is quite hard as we live close to the ocean, and the chlorine is very damaging to plants, so would it be OK to treat the water with conditioner?

It isn't going to hurt your houseplants at all, but it won't be a complete nutrient regimen on its own. Combined with fish waste, it can be a good fertilizer water.
