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 8-oz 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Our little project Shipping took a while but my kid was super excited when we got them in the mail. They're currently in the chrysalis phase soon they'll be butterflies and it's been a nice learning experience for us both.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great educational tool that anyone can do My husband & I purchased this product to grow butterflies with our 5 yr old daughter. We had no idea her preschool teacher would also be doing this in her classroom as well. We grew(and are still growing...waiting for them to emerge)our specimen a few weeks after her classroom, so she was able to discuss what SHE learned from school and we could supplement with other important facts. The kit is very easy to understand. We were sent 6 caterpillars & 5 made it all the way to Chrysalis stage..,we should have butterflies in a few days!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Value The five larvae arrived healthy and active. They immediately started growing and eating. Within two weeks they were in the chrysalis stage. They haven't emerged yet, but my students are super excited.
