Help with growing an aloe plant from the seed; Can I use a heat lamp?
I got one of those aloe kits where you grow the plant from the seed in a little rock planter with a sprouting dome. The instructions say to keep the planter in bright light. Well it’s gonna be really cloudy and rainy here for the next week or two, and I was wondering if a heat lamp would be okay to use or would it be too harsh on a growing aloe seed?

You don’t need to concern yourself with light until the seed sprouts and by then you should be okay. They don’t need that much light every single day. I keep mine in the window with a northern exposure so it never sees bright light and it’s doing fine.
