Add a hint to an entire group or repeat

I've set up an environmental survey that captures information on the site surveyed (including exact location) and the person surveying in the 'parent' group and then has a 'repeat' section for each species observed at each location.


The link will be shared with a large number of volunteer citizen scientists who may not be overly familiar with completing online survey forms and I want to make sure the concept of 'repeats' is clear to them. Is it possible to display a 'hint' for an entire group or repeat as you would for individual questions? 


To illustrate I've attached a screenshot of the relevant section on the web form. 'Records' is the label for my repeat and I've added a 'hint' that does not display here. I want to explain to our surveyors that they can now enter multiple records relating to the site / location specified above and that they will need to click the '+' button to do so each time. Is there a way of using the 'hint' function on repeats or groups, or is there an alternative way of leaving instructions?
