Indoor plants need an average temperature between 20 ̊ C – 25 ̊ C which can be tricky to achieve at night during the colder months. The heat produced from grow lights is generally insufficient in ensuring your grow room is at the optimum temperature. Read on to see what’s new in grow room heaters…
When the temperature drops, your plants are at risk of cold damage. When the heat drops quickly it can shock the plants causing them to stop feeding and lose yield.
Cold damage symptons include:
- Leaf curling
- Damaged spots
Take care of your air
This is where grow heaters help. They offer a cost-effective way to warm your grow environment, and allow you to control the conditions to ensure your plants can thrive through winter.
Choosing a heater comes with many advantages. They are affordable when compared to other sources of heat and the up-front cost is also low.
Due to their small size, most grow room heaters can be fitted in any space in any dry room in the home. Being lightweight makes them highly portable, so they are extremely easy to carry around.
Another added benefit is that they heat up the space quickly if the door of the room is closed, and an adjustable thermostat allows you to control the temperature of the room to suit the requirements of the plants you are growing.
Heaters are also easy to use. You just plug it in and power on.
A step in the right direction
By providing your plants with extra heat, you will soon reap the benefits:
- Stronger fruiting or flowering
- Eliminate the risk of plants stalling
- Fewer problems with your plants
- Enjoy all year-round indoor growing
At some point you should install a heater in your grow space, this way there will be a nice cross over between the lights on/lights off temperature. It also means you can control the temperature and keep any drops or spikes to a minimum.
Heating when you need it. Cooling when you want it.
