QUALITY PRODUCT
Now this is a heat mat!! Four feet long and almost two feet wide it can easily heat four standard seed trays. The mat along with the included thermostat with a probe can be set to automatically regulate soil temperature for consistent healthy germanation and plant growth. The thermostat can be used with this mat or any compatible mats. The instructions are printed on the mat and are very informative. Viagrow has produced a well thought out quality product.

nice large mat
Seedlings can be temperamental, and controlling the growing area temperature to keep it consistent helps immensely. We had good results in our basement growing pepper, tomato, and other vegetable seedlings in peat pots on this mat. Since the basement isn't heated, the temperature varies greatly day by day. This mat provided a nice warm spot for the seeds to sprout and grow.

Essential For Seed Starting in Cold Climates
This heating mat is sold with and without the thermostat, mine had the thermostat included. The minimum temperature setting for my thermostat was 68 degrees but you can increase it to your desired temperature. The mat came folded and I really wish the company would roll it around a cardboard core so that is wouldn't have the folds, otherwise I have no complaints. The thermostat probe is inserted into the growing medium and signals when to turn on and off the heat. I recommend inserting the probe clear to the bottom of your trays, otherwise the roots get significantly warmer than the indicated temperature.

Great product!
I ordered it in November to use in a small unheated attached greenhouse with the rose cuttings taken in September. It was an experiment but the cuttings were doing very well and I could not bring myself to let them freeze to death. We hit single digit temperatures in November and for weeks in December. The temperature in the greenhouse went down to 21 F but the plants in the dome propagator and thermostat set to 65 F are still very much alive and have new leaves. The heat mat is on with thermostat since November without fail. The product is very well made, large enough for 3-4 seedling trays. Very easy to clean and waterproof. It was a little stiff upon unpacking but straightened up overnight. I'm really looking forward to use it for germinating seeds soon. Also thinking of buying another one and planting winter greens in the greenhouse next winter. Another experiment but it might work too :-)

Nice slightly warm mat - several uses
Thie mat heats to a comfortable warmth. When it arrived, it was rolled up and hard to make it stay flat. When I turned on the heater, the mat flattened out. We haven't had weather cold enough to use with plantings, so I haven't tried that. But I did find that my cats loved lying on the mat while I was testing it. As another use, when it gets cold, I will put a towel over it and turn it on for the cats to lie on. It's heavy duty and not flimsy. My cats didn't try to claw the mat. There's not really anything for them to grab onto. Because the thermostat needs to be in the dirt around plants, I haven't tried the thermostat part yet.

Geat!!
This mat is awesome for those of us that start our plants indoors. This mat fits perfectly on my 6' table under a 5' grow light and I can put 80 seedlings in one location. This mat has an ultra unique feature because it comes with a thermostat so you can adjust the temperature of the heat pad. This thermostat can even be used with most other heat pads. I definitely recommend this heat mat for avid gardeners! Thanks Home Depot for the opportunity to try it out.

Tomato Seed Cozy
The product came rolled up, it never flatend out even completly even after it was heated so I was disappointed in that. For now I have just started using it and it seems to work alright. I suggest you get some kind of foam mat to put underneath it to reflect the heat up otherwise it doesnt hold temp.
