Random quick question, Does Aldrovanda vesiculosa require like "soft" water like distilled, RO, etc? Or can I add it to my aquarium with treated water (150-200 ppm)

Utricularia, in my country, grows in swamps. They have high ppm. The ppm cannot be measured correctly, if the water is not filtered. It will be high ppm, because is mixed with mud. Read here more, from Iasi Botanical Garden, from my county.
