That's a great idea Dominic! Maybe the pollinators have a certain temperature they like best (just like us!). Around what temperature do you think you'll see the most pollinators? Why?

Hi! That's a nice find. Did you notice any insects, worms, slugs, or arachnids also nearby? Do you think it would be interesting to check on the flowers early in the morning, around 2pm on a sunny day, and once more after dinner just to observe what times are more active? Please share your findings if you do so.

Those are some pretty flowers! You mentioned that your plant never had any pollinators. Do you remember what time it was when you took this photo? Can you try visiting this plant again at a different time of day to see if it has any pollinators?
