Hello!

I have a giant venus fly trap and a pitcher plant and I have a question. Is rain water better than distilled water for carnivorous plants? Or the opposite? Its raining a storm here and I want to see whats better.

Thanks!

Rain water is best for them. I have to use distilled water for mine since we have no significant rainwater to collect here.
