Heatmat size problems
    #4638035 - 09/09/05 03:27 PM (11 years, 9 months ago)

Iam planning on using a propagator for my fruiting chamber with a heatmat underneath. most heatmats I've found are only 5-6" in length which is approximately half the length of propagator. Will this cause problems with varying temperatures within the fruiting chamber or am I worrying over nothing.

Is this a FRUITING chamber or an INCUBATOR? A fruiting chamber doesn't need to be heated unless it's really cold.

You don't have heat in the UK? lol. I didn't think that was a third world country......

But anyway, are you SURE your temps are below 90 degrees constantly? You may be growing in a basement or something where heat isn't as accessable.

If you are truley worried, you can use something to dissipate the heat before it touches the prop. Something like a thin block of wood would work perfectly. But all in all, just slap it under there and let'r rip. I think you are worrying over nothing. BE SURE that your temps are good though at the base of where the heating pad is inside your propagator. You don't want to fry the little guys...
