The last couple of weeks I have noticed the honey bees are really working my bog
pots. They aren't paying any attention to the plants, but are getting
"something" from the surface of the media. Some pots have moss, others don't.
I can't believe they are just after the moisture, they can get that from the
pond or nearby puddles (lots of rain recently). A pot I have been transplanting
lots of dews into (filiformis and intermedia) they leave alone. The only difference with that pot is I stripped all the old moss and other "stuff" off the top, mixed up the media, and
started putting in the dews, so the surface of the media is "new".
I thought maybe they were getting pollen or nectar from the moss, but they don't
concentrate on the moss, but work the bare media as well.
And yes, I am sure they are honey bees, they are from my hives.
