Heat mats with soil

I use a timer with my heat Matt, 30mins on 30mins off (ish) throughout the day (depending on the weekly weather temps) in my shed gives me soil temps of between 20c - 23c.

 

Cheers Matt.

 

You had many heat issues in the shed over the winter? I’ve insulated and plaster boarded my out building. Then the tent in there. More concerned the only fresh air source will be direct from outside air which could be pretty nippy.

Yeah that makes sense, i think i will replace with plastic pots as they are not in the fabric ones yet. Maybe some bubble wrap for across the tops as well? Seen that in a few diaries. 

 

Thanks for the advice. Glad I joined here, already helped with the majority of my pre first grow nerves. 

 

 

hang around mate it's a friendly, safe place.

Yeah, struggled a little when we had them cold nights couple weeks ago, had to add a home made cabinet heater (placed behind the air inlets) which kept the wardrobe temps up during lights off.

 

My shed isn't insulated but my wardrobe is insulated with half inch thick foam/rubber floor matting which seems to do an ok job.

 

I think I'll knock it on the head after my current grow finishes though (couple weeks left), will have a rest for the next few winter months and start back up in march.
