    i wouldnt use a heater m8 your lights will create enough heat, avrage room temps are around 60 , you should be fine with the heat from the lights

    Not sure if ya need a heater either, but if ya do , put it near the ground. Heat rises, U don't want to heat from the top down.Peace

    its electric.....shaped like an old fashioned radiator...you can set it so it cycles on and off and never really gets hot to the touch

    temps at 60???
    They should never be below 70f-- and stay between 70-85max.....
    at 60f growth slows and the plants may stunt due to retarding of root growth....
    ever notice heat mats for plants?? They are used because the soil/water should stay around 70-75f.... if your air temp is 60f... aint gunna happen.

    R the higher temp used to compensate the lower temps? Or is that the norm? Seems a bit high. Peace
