Can hard water kill plants?
I just moved a few miles and to a new water district. The water is a bit worse then before. TDS avg 713. Used to average 512 at my old place. (I checked today) PH avg 7.6. Cant figure out why some potted plants are dying. Yellowing and frying of the older leaves. After the plants start gettting their fruiting and blooming fertilizer when theyre older. Potted plants are doing the worst. But cole crops in the ground stunted and purple leaves, and some annual flowers not too good either. With all the rain we're getting I doubt its the same problem Im having in the hoophouse as exposed garden plants. I always thought hard water just had salts and periodic flushing would do the trick. Thank you!
