Sure can. The well water contains the dissolved minerals and nutrients the plants NEED.
So if plants are yellowing and wilting....you are overwatering, basically drowning the plants. Get a moisture meter and check. If it says extremely wet.,,,it is. Or, the way to water the plants is to stick the planter pot in the kitchen sink and let the spigot from the faucet fill the pot until water is coming out the bottom of the pot holes. Turn off tap & let it drip dry for a minute and then put it back in its drip dish. Don't water for at least a WEEK...and do the flood again. The fertilizing salts wash out and the soil is moist. Good for a WEEK(or two) You know when plants are getting too dry is when the leaves start to droop and start to go brown.
Municipal water is just as good as well water(even with the chlorine) as the chlorine is such a small amount the plants don't notice it.
I have advanced to Silk and Plastic & dried plants...wash in sink once a year and they are good to go. Roses are red all year round.
