During seasons with very low or high temperature fluctuations, we reserve the right to hold shipments to ensure the health of our organisms. This may briefly delay shipments during those periods. Carolina makes raising and studying painted lady butterflies easy with our 5-larvae culture cup. We ship larvae in a clear, self-contained culture cup so children can easily observe caterpillar development. There is no food to mix and nothing to set up. Caterpillars simply eat the medium supplied in the culture cup until they form a chrysalis. Children then hang up the chrysalises in the habitat. After 7-10 days, the adult butterflies will emerge hungry. Make sure you provide sugar water for the adults to eat.
