I am interested in starting some hot peppers from seed and I know they like warm temps so i am considering a heat mat. But, I also use the seed trays with a watering system that draws the water from a tray underneath the potted seedlings because I need to be sure if I leave for a few days that they don't dry out. Keeps the seedlings consistently moist BUT not any warmer than the room they are in. I am wondering if heat mats will still work when put under these trays?? Any thoughts?

Seedlings are okay with those temps. I have used heat mats when I've started out in the cold cellar but I don't need them on the main floor.

Thank you for your input. I will let you know how it works out when they have germinated. I am going to set them today.
