If you replace the tea lights with scented candles you would have an automatic air freshener as well (if you can stand the pong of scented candles)

Your quite right Jelboy. I would never suggest a naked flame in a tent, especially at night and hope I didn't imply it. But I did wonder if anyone had used it and where. Perhaps I should have posted in the Life in general thread and not here. Geoff

I think you posted in the right place Geoff...The idea is good in principle...and could be used in some camping/caravanning situations....Just not on the floor of a wee 2-3man tent...

For instance....Could be used in a cook/loo tent or large awning to keep the chill off....

I read about this idea some years ago except that the flower pot was put up-side-down on the low setting of a gas stove and left for an hour prior to going to bed.
Then the flame was turned off and the flower pot continues to give off a fair amount of heat for 3 to 4 hours, taking the chill off the room.

Ofcourse where this flower pot heater will come into its own, obvious dangers aside, is where folks have a power cut. As these are becoming more common these days, perhaps we should all be thinking about stashing a few of these away for emergencies.

Personally we have a couple of Super Ser type heaters, a camping Gas Stove and some Oil Lamps just kept for power cuts and if it lasts longer than 24 hours, we can always move into the caravan, but for those that are not so prepared, the flower pot could save you from freezing.
