White Hard Water Stains on Spider Plants

I live in Phoenix and my spider plants just recently started showing what looks like hard water stains on leaves. They are getting the same water as before and I mist every morning or afternoon. They do not get any full sun, being in Arizona it is 108 degrees F. What can I do?

Try using distilled / bottled water. It may just be that your tap water is hard.

I have the same thing on my Peoni Bush this year. Had it last year too. Somebody told me it's the city water? Maybe too much chlorine in the water? Also, my Peoni did not bloom this year. Any thoughts on that, anyone? Thanks,
