If temperatures are cool and humidity is low, there will be further evaporative cooling of the root zone. To avoid this some people put Phals on warming mats for the winter.
Thanks for your response. I'm considering getting a warming mat, but I'm concerned about leaving it on all day and it turning into a fire hazard. I'm just a noob home grower.

Many people use them for Phals. You can put them on timers. The ones intended for plants are unlikely to cause fires. I would suggest a layer of polystyrene foam building insulation sheeting underneath to protect furniture, and minimize heat loss.

Thanks, looks like it’s $24 on the Canadian Amazon site, but that’s still pretty decent.

Sorry. I searched “seedling heat mat Amazon.ca”, but it must have geolocated me.
