Ok so the winter months are upon us as most of us are aware and with the dip in temps im starting to have troubles keeping my pots/root zone warm enough all my plants are in 5g fabric pots and just sit into of a saucer tray i need a some what cheap way of fixing this issue without it looking goofy or ghetto af lmao I found these on Amazon and would like thoughts or if anyone else uses them they are a bit pricey imo bit if work well will invest in a bunch
Although it sounds like a quick and easy fix i have 12 plants currently in my 4x8 so thats kinda out of topic haha I definitely appreciate it tho I do plan on actually getting a small heater tho
I use the heating pad shown below or i guess above. Use it with the thermostat or it will hover above 100 degrees… I use the heating matt for the little ones and have a heater in the larger tent. It does get cold at night.
Growing in a basement? Idk my roots stay warm my tents warm
No but I’m northern states and im in a old house that use to be a cabin haha
I’m in Canada in a trailer, I would say just don’t let your pots sit on the ground you want to collect run off anyway so you need a system. Raise them up 6 inches.
I have 4in pot risers otw ordered 2 days ago should hopefully be here tomorrow or Tuesday also have a small heater going during the night time set to keep the tent at 75F
This is why I run autos 20hr a day. Lol
Or run two tents and off set the trimmers, a heater costs just as much to power as a led board!
Yeah its a small heater but I don’t think I’ll need it once I’m able to get my pots up off the ground my tent typically fluctuates between 75 and 80
I was wondering the same thing… I’m in Texas and was thinking about using a old fashion heating blanket on the floor underneath my 15, 5 gal fabric pots_ also use a thermostat so as to not get above 75-80 degrees…… IDK just a thought
I wouldn’t worry too much unless on a slab foundation. Risers/elevators work well if on concrete and a little heater with a thermostat will do the trick shouldn’t be too bad in the lower 48
