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 1 out of 5 by from All we’re dead but 1 Very disappointed they were all dead but 1. I will never buy another product from here again. My kids were extremely upset. They are big bug fanatics.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very fun and educational tool for all ages! We received our larvae in decent time, watched them double in size everyday, then watched all of them form cocoons! Not long after, 3 of the 5 hatched and turned into beautiful little butterflies! My two year old daughter loved watching the process and although she is a little too young to really understand, it was a great experience for her to have. I highly recommend, great for kids and adults alike!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great project for my kids! I did the lifecycle of the butterfly with my homeschool children. We absolutely loved that we were able to see it happen! It was perfect to do at Easter time.
