Why You Should Use Distilled Water in Your Terrarium


Q: Does distilled water have significant advantages over boiled and cooled water?

A: Using distilled water in your terrarium reduces the accumulation of mineral build-up in your environment. If you choose to water your terrarium with tap water or boiled tap water, you may see a crust of mineral deposit form in your soil or on the walls of your terrarium vessel over time.  If you know your tap water is particularly hard or soft - I would recommend using distilled water in your terrarium as much as possible.

  1. Using distilled water to moisten my terrain seems like an expensive option, but I will certainly prefer to drink the water, instead. Alternatively, I can learn how to make distilled water.

    1. It is not a good idea to drink distilled water, as it will throw off the salt balance and sometimes acidity of your body.
