<<It's from what's in "Instant Ocean" and *not* in kosher salt (which is pure

importer told me), and do not really like dead soft water. Kosher salt
doesn't change that at all. The artificial sea salts contain a lot of other
stuff, like magnesium, trace elements, etc. that probably are essential for
those plants. I keep them in up to 50% sea water, routinely, BTW -- even
I also used to think that Kosher salt was "pure NaCl", but I recently checked
a box (marked with the "Parve" symbol) and was surprised to find that Sulfite
(or was it "Sulfide") anti-caking compounds are now accepted in Kosher salt.
This may be part of the problem.
