    Is there any brand of heating pad sold anywhere today that does not automatically shut itself off at some preset time?

    I bought 3 different types of heating pads and they all shut off. I cannot locate a heating pad out there that doesn't.

    I need something to place under a tray of seeds I am attempting to germinate.

    Thanks much for any help

    Laura,
    Are you trying to use a regular hot pad for heating seed trays? If so I wouldn't recommend them for several reasons. They can get too hot and cook the seedlings or worse yet catch on fire. Which is why some of them switch off after a set time. Also, they aren't completely waterproof so there is the possibility of water shorting them out.

    There are mats made specifically for seed starting.

    This is a little more fancy: Mini Electric Greenhouse

    You can also find them on eBay

    Just another thought to maybe try.
    You could also use a fish tank with a submersible fish heater. Fill the tank with 3 or 4 inches of water. Set the heater to the desired temp and place it on the bottom of the tank. Make a shelf just above the water to place your pots with the seeds your are wanting to germinate.
