I keep several containers here and there to collect rain water.
I think the list you wrote are all an okay substitute except for the boiled water. I would skip that one.
Of the 5 I think I would select #4 as the best option. Others may think differently.

I wanted to say something about why (in my opinion) the water from the air conditioner and/or dehumidifier is bad for plants, but I couldn't find the words in my brain. Here is a link which may help you know why I would not choose the water from that source:

Oh, and I have had lots of luck rooting all kinds of plants but I found Rosemary very difficult to propagate from cuttings.
