At https://www.sciencenews.org/article/flower-antennas-bees-electrical-signals/ …  flowers may act as antennae for bees electrical signals. Plants might use the signals to communicate when to trigger nectar production. The role of plants in the natural world is becoming a fascinating subject. Flowering plants attract pollinators – by electrical communication. According to David Robert of Bristol University. How plants use electrical communications is now an active quest – both above and below the ground. Bumblebees, for example, carry a positive electrical chage and flowers have a negative charge. Flowers can also increase scent production when a pollinator approaches. The research was presented at the American Physical Society Meeting in Minneapolis in March of 2024.
