Do you mix your bottled water with tap water? Bottled water often has little to no mineral content and this would explain why your plants aren't doing well.

it is drinking water, so it does have some. and i add a liquid fert that is supposed to have the minerals needed. i don't trust my tap water where i'm at. it is the only real thing i can come up with to have killed off my first attempt's fish (i'm across the street from a Pfizer pharmaceutical's plant and am concerned with contamination. we don't drink the water here, i'm not giving to my fish).
