    I dont think applying more peat on top of the LFS would help as the heat would just be retained even more IMO. Kinda like adding a blanket layer. Plus it would defeat the purpose of even having the LFS there for top layer.
    Though it can retain heat my LFS has never overheated my rhizomes, just choked them out in some instances.

    Chomp: If you're concerned about overheating, then apply a layer of PERLITE to the top of the bog which should reflect a large part of the sun's rays and keep your bog cooler. However it's hardly ever necessary except perhaps in the hottest of places.

    I live in one of the cooler states, so I don't think perlite is necessary.
    Thanx for the name glider14
