How to Use A Heat Mat for Seed Starting

My growing interest for growing super hot peppers really peeked my interest in a heat mat for seed starting.  The hotter varieties of peppers take forever to germinate.  They need warmer soil to germinate and that is hard to create this time of year in my hardiness zone even indoors.   After purchasing my first heat mat on Amazon the seeds were growing with a few days earlier then suggested.  I AM SOLD!  I bought 2 more heat mats for the other shelves in my set up you will find in the video below.  Please check it out and scroll down to see my additional tips and images.

  1. Did you use a thermostat with your heat mats?

    1. That is a really good question. I was just reading up on what the temperature of the soil should be for certain seeds to germinate. I simply took my thermometer I use to test the soil to check.
