I am trying to find out if my tap water is soft enough for sarracenia smoorii.  Please find below the official water classification . Any advice would be greatly appreciated.


Calcium Hardness (mg/l) 27.6
Magnesium (mg/l) 0.6
Potassium (mg/l) 0.3
Calcium (mg/l) 10.1
Total Hardness (mg CaCO3/l) 11.1
Clark English Degrees 1.9
French Degrees 2.8
German Degrees 1.5
NI Hardness Classification Soft


Thanks in advance

Goodness, that water's amazingly low in hardness.  Well, low in everything, actually!  It's not tap water is it?  If it is you're a lucky person.

It'll be fine for Sarracenia.  Have fun growing it.
