Cheaper Heat Mat

A heating pad set on low and placed underneath a cookie rack makes a great impromptu bottom-heat source for tomato, pepper and other seeds! Just set the tray on the mat until the seedlings germinate. Do NOT leave the pad on while you're away from home!

It's as easy as calling your local fire department and asking them.

Heating pads are not recommended for use around water or wet areas.

It could void your home owners insurance if it caused a fire.
