Monarch Watch : Monarch Waystation Program

You can be an official monarch waystation! Official sign! Official certificate!

I am doing this immediately. What a great way to introduce conservation practices and values to young and elderly and 34-year-old man-children alike!

Do it!

Nomia iridescens a Bee with colourful abdominal stripes 

This cool bee, scientifically named Nomia iridescens, belongs to the Halictidae Family, a cosmopolitan group commonly referred to as halictid bees and sweat bees.

Nomia iridescens is a conspicuously banded bee with amazing neon-green stripes, which occurs in southeast Asia (India, Borneo, Peninsular malaysia, Philippines).

Sweat bees, play a vital role in the pollination ecology of a region. By having  a wide range of adaptational capabilities, these inhabit all kind of ecological niches both in tropical and temperate regions. In number and kind these anthophilic insects (attracted to flowers) surpass all other bees and thus are mainly responsible for conserving the vegetation germplasm by pollinating a bewildering variety of wild and cultivated entomophilic flora.

Sweat bee is not a flattering name. I shall call it “sweet bee” and give it tiny consensual hugs.

If you live in a place where you can grow mangoes outdoors, you can basically count on them sprouting in your compost.

For those of us who have to grow them in little containers as indoor plants, the process is a little more involved.

Steps to a mango tree:

  • Eat delicious mango
  • Clean the pit so it can be handled without slipping
  • Gently and carefully pry open the pit with a knife
  • Remove the seed and wash it
  • Lay the seed on its side in a mix of wet, sterile vermiculite and perlite, or on wet paper towel
  • Fashion a greenhouse out of something you having kickin’ around the house. Plastic bags are great for this purpose

I’ve tried just putting the whole pit in soil, and also sprouting in a wet paper towel: I lost 4 to mould. This attempt was more “fruitful,” if you catch my drift (dad joke?).

What a dream a mango tree would be.
