Seedlings Heat Mat is rated out of 5 by 13.Rated 5 out of 5 by oldeoak from unbelievable! after many years of starting seeds at room temperature, I decided it was time to spring for heat mats so I bought (2) 3x20s...planted the seeds this Monday (2-1-16) and by yesterday (2-4-16) I had 12 out of 24 seeds germinated...I'll attach pictures which will show you what I did better than I can explain...in years past it would always take 10 days or so see any results...I usually start my seeds 10 weeks before schedule planting...I think I may have started these too soon!Date published: 2016-02-05Rated 5 out of 5 by Bluphuz from Seedling success with a heat mat For years I started seedlings for my garden in late winter and for years they were spindly and weak when I went to plant them, when they germinated at all. Adding fluorescent lighting helped, but the plants were still not robust. So last spring I bought a Heat Mat and found my seeds germinated and grew rapidly with the addition of root heat. The seedlings were robust and I had so many tomato plants that I supplied my friends. I was so pleased that I bought another, larger heat mat. The mat itself seems well-made, is light weight water resistant. The instructions for use are printed on the mat itself. A second use: as a heat source in making yogurtDate published: 2014-10-22Rated 5 out of 5 by Gilgamesh from Good Product I have two heat mats. One is 10x20 and other is 48x20. Pleased with both. I use them mostly for the summer plants, such as eggplants, tomatoes and peppers. Plants do grow a lot faster using the heat mat. The same kind of plants, left outside in a pot are clearly lagging behind in growth. Overall, I am pretty pleased with this. I recommend this to all the serious home gardeners.Date published: 2014-09-17Rated 5 out of 5 by ChuckTheGardener from Works just as promised! I had long been deterred by the $39.95 price tag on this mat, but now that I've bought it I'm so glad I did. It gives a good 10-15 degree increase in heat, evenly distributed across the mat, except at the ends (the short sides of the rectangle) which stay a little cooler. The 20 degree increase promised in the description might be a bit of a stretch. Nonetheless, it gives an immediate and tangible benefit to the seedlings, which sprout faster and more vigorously. It makes germination a lot more fun! On the product packaging, it mentions that you should put an insulating layer between the mat and the surface it's on; a cold surface will suck up a lot of the heat. For this, I recommend keeping the box it comes in, not only is it just the right size, but air is the best insulator of all.Date published: 2014-04-01Rated 5 out of 5 by Bwright from Pleasantly surprised! I was under-whelmed when I pulled these mats out of the box, but they are really great! They improved germination dramatically and maintained the soil at just the right temperature without a lot of monitoring on my part. I'll be using these season after season without hesitation!Date published: 2013-05-10Rated 5 out of 5 by CAMr from A great help in starting seeds inside This is the 3rd year we've used these mats (large size for 2 years). They have greatly increased not only germination but also early growth. We use them with florescent lights to raise seedlings in our basement. Initially we used the same timer for both the heating mats and the lights. The only concern we had was that soil temperatures could get into the 90's which was hotter than we desired. This year we added a thermostat for the mats and hold the 'day' temperature in the 76 to 80 degree F range. Germination with this set-up has been very good.Date published: 2010-02-06Rated 5 out of 5 by MrTarkanian from Im so happy I bought this mat1 I like to start seeds indoors and decided to purchase this heating mat. I am thrilled with the purchase and only wish I had gotten the bigger one. I started my tomato seeds three to four days ago and my heating mat just came in yesterday. I set the flat up on the mat and just this morning and about 90% (out of 72 planted)of the seeds sprouted overnight. I would recommend this mat to anyone who grows indoors and I will probably order the bigger one soon!Date published: 2009-04-21Rated 5 out of 5 by Symphony from The BEST! Last year everything germinated so slowly. This year I bought a seedling heat mat. Unbelieveable! Basil, tomato, eggplant seeds germinated within 4-days. Pepper plants germinated and sprouted within six days. So far, no damping-off. I will amend this rating with another review if damping-off occurs. I home to be harvesting tomatoes in July, this year (2009)!Date published: 2009-02-20
