Carolina makes it easy to teach the concept of life cycle with live painted lady butterflies! Order a prepaid living material coupon to receive your painted lady butterflies, Vanessa cardui, and their food. Once the coupon arrives, you can plan ahead to request shipment of the larvae at your convenience. The larvae pupate and emerge as adult butterflies in about 30 days. Witnessing metamorphosis is an experience that children never forget! At least 3 out of 5 larvae are guaranteed to emerge as healthy adult butterflies. Larvae come with care instructions.

After the adults emerge, try breeding them. All you need is the proper host plant for the adults to lay eggs on. The Mallow Plant (item #144042) is the painted lady's natural host. Once your new generation of caterpillars hatch, they will be hungry, and the mallow plant is the perfect source of food for them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Learning Experience My students were very engaged when I taught about the life of a butterfly. We had students coming in to see them from other classrooms. This was a wonderful addition to my kindergarten classroom! *I'm glad that there is a warning about the red liquid that comes out of the chrysalis. Children were worried that the butterflies were bleeding.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very User Friendly! The supplied food made it very simple to raise the painted ladies and see all the stages of their life cycle. We compared them to the Kamehameha butterflies growing on a crown flower bush on campus to look for similarities and differences in the cycles. Very good stuff!

Address Multiple Life Science Topics

Painted lady butterflies are appropriate for all grade levels but especially effective for grades K–8. They enable students to observe complete metamorphosis, from caterpillar to chrysalis to adult butterfly. Students can then compare the butterfly life cycle to that of other animals or investigate how temperature affects insect development time. General life science topics can be addressed as well, including how form fits function and what organisms need to survive.

We are committed to producing quality, exclusive painted lady butterfly kits and cultures for educators. The hallmark of our commitment to quality is our highly trained scientific staff.
