Reliable Temperature Control
Seeds germinate differently. A seedling heat mat provides warm soil for plants that germinate indoors at certain warm temperatures and periods. Plants such as peppers, eggplants, tomatoes, melons, woody herbs, and perennial flowers grow better this way. On the other hand, some seeds, such as strawberries, have a variable rate of germination. Half of the seedlings may germinate earlier and the other half later. This seedling mat warms at an above grow-room temperature of 1°C to increase the chances of an even and successful germination period.
This heating pad is safe to use in a garden and greenhouse setting with its fairly thick, waterproof, and plastic heat-bonded PVC material that resists up to 105 degrees of heat. It comes with an internal heating wire that securely stays in place and provides uniform heating. Even if you’re watering plant trays, the electric components stay waterproof as they are durably sealed to keep water out, meeting the IP67 waterproof standard. It also comes with a sturdy 1.8-meter outlet that can withstand 15kg of pull force. At the end of use, it is easy to clean. You can just conveniently roll it up and store it easily for future use over the years.
How to Use
This germination mat is easy to use, so you can quickly figure it out even if you’re not an experienced gardener. All you need to do is find a flat dry surface for your mat and plug it into a 220-240 volt outlet. You may start placing flats, celled trays, or individual pots on top of your pad, and remember to be extremely patient as some large pots take days to warm up. For better results on some occasions, you can cover your seedlings and cuttings with a humidity dome. To ensure optimum operation, never allow your mat to be submerged in water or placed on rough, pointed surfaces. You must also be sure to remove seedlings from the pads after successful germination to keep seedlings healthy.
Low Power Consumption
This heat mat for seedlings has low power consumption and does not produce a strong vapour effect harmful to plants. Plus, it works great for most seeds. Not only does it increase the success of growing seedlings, but you can use it on cuttings and clone propagations as well. It works well with cuttings since warm soil stimulates root growth.
This seedling heat mat is convenient to fit the needs of simple home gardeners down to professional greenhouse growers. Its 24 cm x 52 cm size can conveniently accommodate multiple planting trays side by side. This garden supply also makes a lovely gift to friends and family who are into gardening.
