Has anyone ever tried a regular old
heating pad for seed germination? (I
keep my apt. cool especially at night.)

    I have used this method for the last 4
    years and have had GREAT success. I
    realize that it could be dangerous but
    if you make sure that all surfaces are
    water protected you will find it really
    works well. I have germinated 5 flats
    of seed this way so far this year,and
    they are all doing great.
