Trent here in sunny south Florida. Clyde Bramblett, near Homestead, Florida,
waters his Nepenthes with well water. Kendall/Homestead well water is about
as limey as you can get! I'm surprised he doesn't have stalactites hanging
from the pitchers! Everything seems happy, and has been for years. The
amazing part is he uses the same well water on his Sarracenias, which
luckily also get the benefits of growing outside--rain. The Nepenthes are in
a greenhouse/lathe house, so only get the rainwater during the summer
Personally, I use R.O. water on my Nepenthes.
