The Fast-Gro Propagation Mat sprouts your seedlings up to three times faster for just pennies a day. Tomatoes usually sprout in 3 – 5 days, with peppers showing up in 7 – 10 days.
Providing added warmth has proven to accelerate seed germination, encourages root development, and also helps to prevent root rot in most plant varieties.
These root zone heating mats are used in commercial greenhouses to jump-start seedlings and plant cuttings. These mats are smaller versions of the ones greenhouses use, made just for home gardeners.
The water-resistant mat raises the soil temperature 15-20 degrees above room temperature.
Water or fertilizer spills easily clean up with a soft cloth and can be rolled like a poster for easy storage.
The 11" x 24" will fit two standard-sized seed flats and can be used on a shelf or counter. Pots or seed flats may be placed directly on the mat's surface. They can be used with a thermostat or placed on a timer.
The Fast-Gro heat mat has completed my small but functional grow station as the heat source and is doing a great job with my seedlings.
