HEATING CABLES FOR HEAT IN A TERRARIUM?
    #1162693 - 12/22/02 04:49 PM (14 years, 2 months ago)

I'm talking about the long ones you'd use for the gutters on the side of your house (eavestroughs)...They run them from one end to the other, usually around 25 feet.
I know they're water proof, ...Used for melting Ice so your gytters don't clog and overflow....
I want ti know if they can be cut at all, shortened, so that I can use it like a fish tank heater, just a different tek to suit my needs....I don't want to go electricuting myself, and I also want to know if it's too much heat...I believe it's verry minimal.

Sorry bud, I've never heard of it, but from what it sounds like, it seems like it'd be easier just to get a fishtank heater and a styrofoam cooler.

i know what you mean , but theres something even better
if the local nursery dosent have it they will order it ya
it called hot bed heater tape and its made to be barried under the soil to heat the roots of plants .they come in lengths of 6' or 15' .cost about 10 or 12 bucks
i dont know about the temp range though .they have a builtin thermostat that isnt ajustable and i dont think it would put out that much heat .cause a flowers roots dont need to be that worm .
your probably better off with a heating pad or aquarium heater .
nice idea though ,thats what its all about , being inventive and haveing fun
