Propagation Mat, 12" x 48", 60W
Bottom heat is one of the most important and effective enhancements to germination and rooting. Our Propagation Mat warms the rooting area to approximately 10°F-20°F above ambient temperature, which markedly improves germination rates and rooting success.
The Propagation Mat is 48" long—perfect for placing two standard trays end-to-end, and ideal for placement under 4-foot fluorescent fixtures. At 12" wide, it also ensures that the entire bottom surface of all your trays will be heated uniformly.
These mats can be daisy-chained (up to 10 mats) to reduce the number of power outlets needed to run multiple mats to a single outlet, and their heavy-duty construction and materials will provide years of reliable service.

I have a 1000W ballast. Can I use a 400W or 600W lamp (bulb) in it?
As a general rule, lamps (bulbs) can only be used with ballasts that specify the same wattage rating. A 1000W lamp can only be used with a 1000W ballast, a 400W with a 400W, etc. Many ballasts are made to handle only one wattage level. An exception to this would be the Xtrasun Variable Watt ballasts (XTEDW-), which have various settings for output power and are meant to be used with a lamp of the same wattage as the dial setting (for example, use a 600W bulb when the ballast is set to 600W, etc.).
Can an HPS ballast be used to power a metal halide lamp?
This is never recommended. The ballast and lamp (bulb) type (wattage and HID lamp type) must match. Convertible ballasts, however, can be switched between MH and HPS modes. There is also the option of using a conversion lamp. These are lamps that are designed to produce a MH spectrum while run on an HPS ballast, or vice versa. Phantom digital ballasts can ignite HPS or MH bulbs, except for the 750W model, which is meant only for HPS.
Why is my Sunburst system making a loud noise when the toggle switch is in the "None" position?
The "None" position simply indicates that the system is operating in neither HPS nor MH mode. This light system should NEVER be plugged in or receive power when the toggle switch is in the "None" position. Doing so may cause damage to the operation of the light system.
