HarrisAz, You don't have to boil distilled water :) . It's naturally devoid of minerals and chemicals and is fine for you plant :D Even if you boil it, that won't change anything, it'd just be more trouble for you with the heating and cooling. You're plants will be just as happy with regular distilled water :D Good luck!
