Yes. we are using distilled water.  We get it from our dryer which does not have an exhaust to the outside world, but condenses internally.  My mother used to boil her water and when she made coffee or tea the leftover was set out to cool down and then it was used later.  The point really is, that the gardenias do not like hard water.  Since we do not use a perculator but a Bodum this also works well for us.

Good luck  --  Chris
