If you don't want to go to the expense of watering your orchids with bottled water you may simply be able to let your tap water sit out overnight. Lots of times the chlorine and other water treatments will evaporate or dissapate when water is left sitting for 24 hours. Give this a try and see how your orchids like the water. I've gone so far as to invest in one of those gallon containers with a built in charcoal filter. I run tap water into the container, let it trickle through the filter and then water my orchids with the filtered water. It works like a charm and I can filter about 300 gallons of water before I need to replace the filter. (PUR is the brand I'm using). Hope this information is helpful. Best wishes with your orchids.
