The Q&A Archives: Watering With Sulfur Water

Question: I just drilled a new well and got sulfur water (rotten egg water). I am wondering if it will be ok to use in my greenhouse on my garden and fruit trees?

Answer: In general, if water is potable then it is safe for plants, but I would suggest that you consult with your county extension (433-0707) to see if there are any special steps you need to take due to the well water by virtue of its quality or mineral content and any possible adverse or cumulative effects. This can be particularly important for greenhouse plants for which the well is the only water source.
