Use H+ when the reaction is in an acidic solution, and use OH-/H20 when the reaction is in a basic solution.
Actually you can use H+/H2O when the reaction is in acidic solution and OH-/H20 if basic. Just rember never let H+ and OH- appear in a single half reaction, except the solution is neutral and you have to.
