How Long I should keep the heating mat under the seed pots?

I keep it all the time and m seeds germinates and live for a week then die?

I remove the bottom heat, and any type of cover I may have used to maintain humidity, right at germination, not beyond. Keeping seedlings too warm from below will often lead to stretched out leggy growth.

If yours are outright dying, maybe something else is going on too. Too wet, or too dry? Could you tell us more about your methods so someone could identify a potential problem?
