Removing chloramine from tap water
We are in a drought, so my rain barrels are empty. I have to use tap water on my houseplants (orchids, hoyas, gesneriads) and it contains chloramine and chlorine. I know the latter evaporates. I’ve been using Top Fin chloramine remover, but I’ve heard that can cause pH to go down and sodium content to rise.
Any advice on how I can treat tap water without going into great expense like an RO system? Once the rainy season is here (Florida), I can go back to rain water. I’d hoped the aquarium product would be short-term, but I’ve had to use tap water for about four months so far.
