so today for the first time EVER did my local grocery store
not have distilled water, … this virus thing has everybody in a panic,
then I was thinking to myself ,well when will they stock up again???
and so I have been pondering the idea of cutting my CP collection in half,
I mean if it comes down to it, I would rather loose a few, then all of them,
that and if things get more serious there are more important things than my plants
… family first,
anyway fee free to share your thoughts. thanks

I had some gemmae arrive today that I got from a giveway, so I went to the store for more distilled water and the didn't have any. So I looked for some ways do make my own and found this video. It looks pretty easy. I'm trying it out right now. Hope this helps you.

I just started collecting rain water for that reason. It takes awhile, but it works.

ZeroWater filters will reduce the ppm to 0. The overall cost may be more or less than buying distilled water, depending on your initial dissolved solids. But if you can't buy distilled water...

Honestly, I would just water them with tap. You can just start flushing them with pure water again when it becomes available. Bad water Is better than no water.
