Why can't I use REAL water...

OK, for my plants in my terrarium, and my little plants on the windowsill I use distilled water, so
that the evil salts don't get them. Rumor has it that these evils will build up in the soil, and kill
the plants.

Question: are CPs particularly sensitive to salt(s) buildup? (Since my
_ordinary_ houseplants don't seem to mind)?

Why do I ask???

Well, I'm going to put in a RO unit for the humans here, and it dumps
about 20 gallons a day in "waste" water making its 5 gallons/day.
Hopefully, there will be a way to _not_ flush this down the sewer!
Like, put the water into a man-man bog with CPs in it!!!

But will it work? Will _bad_ things abound in the moss, and kill the
plant(s). Is there a way to compensate (i.e., flush out the stuff)?

Any thoughts will be appreciated.
