What types of plants thrive on reclaimed water?

Some plants are sensitive to the amount of chlorides in irrigation water. These include azaleas, Chinese privet, gardenias, roses, geraniums and orchids. If leaf burning is observed, consider drip irrigation so the water is applied at the soil level rather than spraying the leaves. Chlorides in the reclaimed water may damage the leaves. Florida's reuse rules allow irrigation of edible food crops through direct contact methods (spray irrigation) that will be peeled, skinned, cooked or thermally processed before human consumption, including citrus.
