This is important as if you want to grow an apple tree at home for example, then you need bees to pollinate the tree. Otherwise you can forget being able to harvest any apples from the tree.
If you are like most people and are growing the peace lily indoors then you should probably move the plant outdoors instead. That will help make it easier for the bees to access the plant. Indoors the bees will just have a really hard time getting to the plant.
Since the plant will be flowering during the summer, the temperatures should be high enough so you don’t have to worry about bringing in your peace lily during the night. Keep it outside until the season starts winding down. That way the plant will most likely get pollinated.
