Plant heating mats are essential for anyone looking to get into gardening. Heating mats will significantly jump-start the seedling germination process. You’ll see an increased number of successful seeds as well as faster grow times. Most mats are designed to heat roughly 10-20 degrees above the current room temperature. However, you can also find plant heating mats with their own thermostat. In that case, you can set and regulate the temperature yourself. Look for a mat with a waterproof outer layer in case of any spills. Alternatively, these mats are commonly used for heating reptile tanks or for home brewing wine, beer, and kombucha.
