Bob, that's perfectly logic for a night blooming plant, as under such conditions the naturally white flowers would be most visible. On the other hand, pollinator insects would be in heat about the same periods.

I have watched this phenomena for years and find it very consistent.  Though it may have a number of flowers during a given flush, they will all open with the full moon or 2 days either side of it.
