I hope my question is not silly but I’m starting a DSM iwagumi now my question is about the water to use when misting,
Is it ok for me to use bottled water when misting during the dry start but when I flood my tank begin using remineralized RO water? I ask because I wondered if the change with completely different water parameters can pose as a issues to The plants.
Thanks

If the soil is fairly wet and the tank properly covered then you do not have to spray that often. But if you have to then if you spray mineralized water or tap water it will always leave stains after it evaporates again.

Spraying demineralized water will save you a lot of cleaning afterwards... Then if you want to spray with fertilizer, then split it up. One day fertilizer the other day a spray wash with Demi water to run off the minerals.
