The water where I live is really hard. (650ppm) I've had a few plants die on me and a member from a local club suggested to me that the water hardness might be the problem. I have read here that hard water is good for plants but is my water too hard?

GH or KH?

KH is an issue for some plants, I've never had issues with GH even at such higher levels.

Here's a KH or 11 and GH of 24(430ppm):

GH. I have not tested KH. I suspect that thr KH is also very high. I haven't have a chance to pickup a test kit for KH yet.

Thank you Tom.
