Seedling Heat Mat Starter Product Details

This Seedling Heat Mat Starter speeds up germination of seeds and gives an improved success rate for growing seedlings. Ideal for vegetable and other types of seeds, this 10-inch by 20-inch mat provides warmth at the root zone, giving your seedlings an excellent start in life. It comes with handy instructions printed on the mat itself so you'll never lose them.

The plant heat mat automatically keeps seeds and roots consistently warm at 10 to 20 degrees F higher than the ambient air temperature in your growing room. Place the mat on a dry, flat surface (not plastic) and plug it into a 120 volt plug outlet. The mat is stain- and water-resistant, and it's UL listed, giving you peace of mind. Set your seed flats or trays on the mat and watch your seedlings sprout in much less time than they do when unheated.

Using a plant heat mat allows you to grow more seedlings for transplanting into the garden because they sprout much sooner, so your turnover is increased. Heat mats can also be used to culture yogurt, kombucha and kefir or to ferment sourdough. Get a jump start on the growing season with a seedling heat mat starter and other Gurney's seed starting supplies.

"I have used a 48"" heat mat for 10+ years with no troubles. However I have three single sized mats ( 12"") that only lasted 2 years. "

Stopped working second season
Reviewed By: Bob (Virginia Beach, VA)
This worked great the first year. This year it stopped working completely. If the price was lower or quality was higher, this would be a great product for every gardner. But this falls short. BTW... There must be only 1 manufacturer, because they all look alike, so buying elsewhere won't help :(

stopped working after 1 year
Reviewed By: Allison H (Leesburg, VA)
Like the other complaints, my mat worked great the first year and did not operate the second. I did not replace this product either. Very expensive for one year use!

Waste of Money
Reviewed By: Pat (Ramah, New Mexico)
The cost of these mats keeps climbing and the value lessens. Out of 5 mats used for 2 seasons, 3 have stopped working. This is nearly a $100 replacement cost. If the industry wants the non-commercial customer to continue using these mats, a cost adjustment is necessary. I won't replace them, I'll find another solution to heating the bottoms of my seed trays, thank you very much.

Argh! Lasted Only 1 Year
Reviewed By: Cheryl (Tumacacori, Arizona)
Yep, like in the other reviews, my carefully handled mat stopped heating near the beginning of its second season, although it worked terrifically the first year. I have decided not to replace it, and just start the seeds earlier.

Worked great three seasons.
Reviewed By: Linda (Pollock, ID)
My seedling heat mat came with a seedling starter kit and worked great until the end of its third season. I really liked it and am looking to replace it with a larger one. I hope the next one I buy lasts longer.

"The heating mat worked good for one year, second time using it there was no heat. The mat was very good while it worked the first year. Not worth the money that was spent."
