Addition of artificial nectar to Blandfordia nobilis plants increased fruit set in plants treated in December but had no apparent effect on either fruit set for plants treated in January or the amount of pollen removed per plant for either the December or January plants. Increased nectar production would therefore have conferred no apparent reproductive advantage to a plant flowering in January and would have been advantageous to a December flowering plant only in terms of reproduction as a female, and not in terms of male reproduction.
