It is also recommended that clean water must be used when watering the seeds and the distilled water is the best one to use. And if you are living in municipalities, don’t worry because the water supplies in municipal places are clean and pH neutral. If you use chlorination, even if in small amount only, the germs and parasites that are in the water will be killed. Although some of the municipal water supplies are good, if you can’t drink it anyway, do not use it for the germination of the marijuana seeds as well. You can also use the bottled water, as long as it is free of additives and carbonation.
