Product Overview

Link to Mulch and Soil Calculator. Get the right amount the first time.
Studies have proven that plants with a root zone that is kept warm thrive and propagate at a much faster rate than plants that do not. Simply place the Seedling Heat Mat on a flat, dry surface under a seedling tray and plug the cord into a 120-Volt outlet. For best results, use propagation dome over the seedling tray and keep it under T5 fluorescent lighting or in a greenhouse lighting environment. Direct sunlight or high HID lights may be too intense for seedlings.

How much electricity does this mat use?

Asked by Carolyn September 30, 2020
1
Answer

The Viagrow 8.5"x20.5" Seedling Heat Mat uses 20 watts.

Does this one have a thermostat on it or no?

Asked by diane11276 July 9, 2020
2
Answers

No it does not. This mat provides very gentle heat. It will keep your plants about 10 degrees warmer than what is the temperature in the space and helps to keep your seedlings from dealing with large swings in temperature.

Why is it that when you go to the store the price is way higher?

Asked by Bertha March 29, 2020
2
Answers

I don't find that to be true. Also, I like the way that Home Depot does business. There have been no reports of price gauging like other stores have had.

Mine stopped working after one day. Any suggestions on how to fix it or should it just be returned?

Is this mat ridged, or flexible like a heating pad?

Asked by Kevin January 29, 2019
5
Answers

It's flexible, but not like a heating pad. The outer skin is waterproof, so more vinyl-y than flannel-y.

are there any seedling heating pads available that are connectable?

Asked by squire50 March 7, 2018
5
Answers

I'm not sure what your question is. What do you mean by "connectable?"

Will this burn plastic surfaces?

Asked by Gabriel April 27, 2017
5
Answers

It gets warm but not that hot. I would only worry if it's Vinyl. It might cause the vinyl to stick.

do you leave it on 24/7 ?

Asked by Joanne March 13, 2017

Answers

I do, but you don't have to. It doesn't do any harm.

The mat is effective. Last year it took my tomatoe seeds to germinate almost twice longer with the tay on the floor. Now I just had to connect the mat in a regular 120V outlet and voilà, a warm mat is created to set my tray on.

Mine is doing a great job. I've had it for almost a week. It's warm, but not so warm that the soil dries out during the day while I am at work. I added a photo of my broccoli and kale, which germinated in only two days, and which is great because I am a little behind schedule to get my seedlings into the ground outside in early April.

Seeds Program Review
(What's this)
This seed propagating heat mat arrived well packaged and in good time. It is smaller than I thought. It is about as wide as a dish remote control. It is supposed to heat a standard seedling tray. When plugged in, the mat heats to about the low setting on a regular heating pad. The one problem I had propagating seeds this spring was poor root development. This heating mat is supposed to solve that problem by keeping the root zone warm. I can't wait to try it next spring.

Good Germination Rates

Some of my cacti seeds require very warm temperatures to germinate, which is why I purchased the seed heating mat. I made a make-shift greenhouse by putting the mat on the floor of an aquarium. Seeds that required higher temperatures were placed on the bottom. Seeds that didn't require as much heat were elevated on a shelf so they could receive indirect warmth. The elevated seedlings have had a decent germination rate. The seeds directly on the mat are known for difficulty in germinating. They are taking a little bit longer.This mat provides great indirect heat. I have a plexiglass lid on the top of the aquarium to contain the heat.

Inside temp was 65deg with the seedling heat mat seeds had sprouted in three days. Another tray of seeds took 8 days to sprout without the heat mat. I will get more mats for early spring planting.

I use these in my house,(I keep house very cool) shelves are metal racks I think the heating pads were challenged in keeping seed trays warm, when I stacked my seed trays on something to get them closer to the lights (piles of news paper) then they kept seed trays warm, plants love these I'am having great results.

Wy wife planted bok choy, arugula and spinach on Dec. 10. The heat mats arrived Dec. 16. From the original planting the bok choy did not sprout. Replanted and on the heat mats it came up evenly in 3 days. This is a very worthwhile apparatus if you like fresh winter produce as much as we do.
