Plants can adjust to high ph so your tap water is fine. Also, the added benefit of tap water, is that it provides trace minerals and micro elements (which are removed in the RO process) that are beneficial to plants.
The only benefit of RO water in a planted tank, in my opinion, is when a controlled nutrient content is desired as sometimes ground water can be high in gh, phosphate or tds that can contribute to algae bloom.
