Our 17 Watt Germination Mat allows you to maintain a constant soil temperature when germinating seeds or propagating plants. The patented, double-layer construction is tough and waterproof, which makes it ideal for a wide range of growing situations. These work great in a greenhouse or indoor seed starting room. We highly recommend using with our Hoss Germination Thermostat to provide the best control of temperature.
This mat is 8.875″ wide by 19.5″ long. It is large enough to provide heat for two of our 12 Cell Seed Starting Trays or one of our 24 Cell Seed Starting Trays. This mat is essential when starting warm-season vegetable seedlings in the late winter months. It will drastically improve germination rates and germination time for peppers, tomatoes, eggplant, okra, melons, flowers and more!
Once seeds have germinated, you may remove the trays from the heat mat if you need to use the mat to germinate other trays. You can also leave the trays on the mat as the seedlings grow. This will help to accelerate the growth and allow you to have transplants ready sooner than later.
