    There was a topic about that, awhile back. From what I remember, topwatering can leach out mineral salts. But it can also mat down the media. I have read that for some plants, like a Cephalotus, they react to topwatering. Maybe I can dig up that topic later.

    Neither topic were what I was referring to, but they do address the question. there was one with more debat to it and more recent. Check out the second reference that Pyro makes. It is Barry rice's FAQ.

    Ah, I think I found it and it was good ole Laura who brought the topic up.

    i recently too have had the burned "brims" of the lids on my guys. I had them sitting on a cement slab which got sun all day. I was told to move them off the cement since they will overheat from radiant heat. So now I have my collection about a foot off the ground in the lawn. I also will water overhead to cool the media off a bit when it gets blazing hot. Since the move there hasn't been any burning going on at all.
