So I have some seeds coming (Golden Barrel, Blue Torch and San Pedro) and was wondering if a heating mat was something that I should get.
However I am kinda tight on money right now and would prefer to get a cheaper one - this usually often means no temperature control. Usually these have a safety measure that keeps the temp at a maximum of about 18°F above the room temperature (or so I've read).
The temperature of where I will be keeping the seeds ranges between about 74 at night, to 85°F in hotter days. That means the mat could reach 100+ degrees... And I'm afraid it might actually be too hot for the seeds.
Is there anyway to controll the temperature somehow on these cheaper mats? Or should I just invest on one with temperature controll? Or might the mat not even be necessary in the temperatures the seeds will be kept in?
Advice would be greatly appreciated!
