    Since 15C is nowhere near warm enough, the answer is yes, you should get a heat source that reaches at least 32C.

    Stronger heat mat and a thermostat set to 32,

    I use a 14w and a habistat on/off, although a pulse would work better

    No heat rocks, they wrapped a bad reputation for having an uneven heating element (different parts different heats)
