That should be sufficient enough for growth.

shouldnt be a prob. if you want to get it a bit higher, take some water out. that way the heater has less water to heat and can get it a bit hotter. youd be fine if you left it as it is though

100 W of heat is a 100 W of heat no matter how much water.


You need to insulate your grow chamber, cause i'm getting mid 80's temps with a 20 watt heater.

100W heats less water to a higher temp. Unless it has a temp control on it.

And because there's less of that hot water, it will give the same amount of heat because of less surface area. You put in 100 W of electrical energy into the grow chamber, and the grow chamber puts of 100 w of heat. The temperature inside depends on how good your grow chamer is insulated.

if you have a cup of water half full, and a cup of water thats full, the surface area is the same.

if you have a kettle thats half full it gets hotter, faster, then a kettle that is all the way full. i agree it needs some insulation maybe, but i think ur wrong on this one mate.
