so would it be better to place a wilted flower in tap water or distilled water?

Answer:
I would say distilled water because it contains a lower cocnentration of solute than the flower and therefore the water would more easily diffuse into the flower. Tap water contains things like minerals and chlorine which would increase the amout of solute in the solution and would diffuse at a much slower rate. Therefore I think distilled water would be the best choice.

Does this makes sense? Should I add anything?
