Inside water plants

Ok, think this is probably the best place.

We have some indoor plants that we have growing in just water, lucky bamboo and some that I don't know the name of.
All summer, we were watering them with clean A/C condensate to help eliminate the mineral rings on the vases and containers. The cooling season is over so we've used distilled water last few times.

Should I add a very dilute houseplant fertilizer to the next watering? Not every time, but maybe just once every 3 months or so? It seems like those that were growing rapidly when we brought them home have sort of stopped in the last few months.

Thanks for any info...
