Rain is better

Many types of seeds show a much better germination rate if they are moistened by rainwater and not by water from the tap. This is somehow not surprising, but I'd never seen such a statement in writing before. I found it in How to Grow Native Plants of Texas and the Southwest (by Jill Nokes; an updated edition), thanks to the library. This information is brought to you by the department of factoids.
