Hobby Heatwave Propagation Panel with Thermostat 115cm x 40cm
This electric propagation panel generates heat from underneath, encouraging rapid and strong growth of both seeds and cuttings, germination and rooting.
The heating element is laminated between sheets of aluminium foil, spreading the heat evenly, giving excellent seed germination and a high strike rate for the propagation of cuttings. The entire foil panel is connected to Earth, offering complete safety, meeting all European Standards. The heating elements are coated in PTFE, ensuring both safety and durability.
Used throughout the world by professional growers, the panel is supplied with a thermostat. Wired in at the factory, including a 13A plug and 1.5m lead, the thermostat is sealed to operate in humid and damp conditions and temperature can be set between 6-38°C. The thermostat bulb should be inserted into the soil to measure the temperature accurately.
Ideally, temperature should be reduced by about 5°C until the plant reaches the stage for planting out. Plants should be grown cold for the last 2-3 weeks to harden them off.
Simple to install, the Hobby Heatwave should be laid on a 2 inch thick polystyrene panel on a bench, then covered with polythene to protect for longer life. Polystyrene and plastic sheeting are available from the accessories section.
