Planters Pride Seed Starter Mat

by Cal Walsh
(Hermosa, South Dakota)

Styrofoam desktop incubators have locations in them that are a little cooler than average in corners etc.,if the room temp is not at least 75 or so.This is why some hatch a couple days later than the first ones. I started putting a seed starter mat under my incubator and now the temps stay a lot more uniform. I still get poor rates from shipped eggs, but they hatch in the same day. I can keep it 69 in my room. The incubator sets on a metal coffee table near my bed. It seems to work for me.
