How about including Budleia species for nectaring plants? Thistle 
might me good for a short period only. Pentas as well as Waterfuchsia 
( Balsiminae) might do O.K. if you have lots of water.

The main problem with open rearing is that you will lose alot of eggs 
& larvae to parasites. and in a small area with a large 
concentration, diseases will also build up quickly. Much better to 
rear in sleeves or containers, and sterilize these in Milton or other 
hypocloride solutions before using again.
