HEATED PROPOGATOR

i have always used sand but i have just looked at the instruction booklet and it says nothing about this and it didnt come with capillery matting so how i came to do this i cant remember so this is my method and im sure ther will be somebody else with a differant one very soon

i put dry sand in the bottom and turn it on the day before i want to use it so that its all ready warmed through, i water my seed trays from the bottom after sowing the seeds and dont water again the condensation will wet the sand, when the seeds have germinated i take them out and put them in the green house with a clear lid for a day or two and then uncover them during the day untill i think they are hardened enough to not need a cover, i hope this makes sense

i think the idea of sand is to create an even distrbution of bottom heat and also the sand takes up the condensation and keeps the air round the cuttings and seeds moist, i have never used mine without sand do you get a pool of water in the bottom ?

i have a stewart and have sand on the base mine is supposed to be temp controled but didnt seem to be working so i put a thermomator in and it was 3 deg out so i have to set it accordingly it might be worth checking what temp yous gets to
