Whether you're propagating your house plants -- or getting a jump start on your garden -- a seedling heat mat will help to make your seed starting a success.
Why use a heating mat? Warm temperatures -- along with moisture and light -- provide optimum conditions for germination. A seedling heating mat, also called a germination mat, will keep the soil around 70°F/21°C -- ideal for coaxing those tiny seeds to sprout.
A Heat Mat speeds germination and stimulates root growth. And, you'll love this -- complete instructions and growing tips are printed right on the mat so you can't lose them. All sizes have a 6-ft power cord.
Three sizes are available:

About saving seeds...
Any plant that blooms eventually produces seeds, and seeds are how many plants propagate naturally in their native habitats.
However, because indoor plants aren't pollinated, their seeds may not germinate. And, seeds produced from hybrids may not grow to the same quality as the parent plant.
Conclusion? You'll likely be disappointed if you try to propagate seeds collected from your indoor plants. It's much better to buy high-quality seeds from a reputable nursery.
