I am considering using a heat pad under each of my shelves for germinating various seeds. I know each plant type has a "Sweet Spot" for the temp but what, on average is a good temp to set for germinating seeds and then for seedlings? I have 2 tents now and will use one for germinating and the other for seedlings, starts, etc. My heat pads are adjustable so each shelf can be set to a different temp.

I have had really good luck keeping Neps and Drosera seeds at 82 degrees. I have a programmable heat pad that is set at 82, and it kicks in when the temp goes to 4 degrees target temperature.
