If you give your plants a healthy environment, it can help you achieve the desired results. The propagation system's temperature is crucial for strong healthy seedlings, and you will see a significant improvement in your yield if you maintain a temperature between 75-80oF.

To maintain this temperature, growers opt for seedling heat mats, and you can find a wide variety of these mats at Groindoor.com.

What are seedling heat mats?

You can use seedling heat mats to raise your propagation system's temperature by 10-20 degrees. These devices help maintain an ideal temperature for seedlings, i.e., 78oF. Once the seeds have germinated, the temperature should be brought down to 70-75oF.

Are heat mats necessary for starting seeds?

Heat mats, which are also known as germination or propagation mats, give your seedlings an ideal temperature to grow. Given that seeds only sprout in ideal conditions and propagation lights generally do not generate much heat, the need for another heating method becomes necessary. This is where heat mats come into play.

Apart from this, heat mats also ensure a consistent temperature in your propagation system. Fluctuations in temperature can stress young plants out and reduce or, in worst cases, stunt their growth.

As a grower, you should keep a hygrometer to maintain temperature and humidity levels in your grow tent or grow room. Suppose the temperature is not in the ideal range. In that case, plants can dry out and have trouble retaining oxygen, which causes them to lose their ability to absorb nutrients.
