Hard or soft water

I'm getting close to potting up some cuttings still in baggies so I started thinking ahead. I had a water softener and acid neutralizer installed in my home last year. One outside hose bib is fed the soft water while the other is fed water directly from the well, which is very high in iron and a bit more acidic at +/- 6.7 ph. Which would be better for my potted figs? Also, do I need to worry about the temperature of the water? It's a pretty deep well (about 300 feet) so the water will rarely, if ever, get above 50 degrees or so. Thanks!
