Why do plants seem to grow better with rain water?
Is this just a common belief, or is it real?
I absolutely believe it is real. My guess is all the chlorine and fluoride in tap water is not good for plants, but I don't really know if that is why.
I would think the additives in much city water would hinder growth, or at the very least affect it in some way. Rain water seems much better for plants.
I believe it's your imagination. In Cephalonia, where my family is from, we collect rainwater because we have no ground wells. The plants grow just as fast (or as slow depending on how you care for them or at what altitude your garden is located). What we have found rainwater to do well is clean the dirty clothes. It is miraculous! However, how quickly plants grow depends on the soil, the climate and your care.
