Painted Lady Butterfly 5-Larvae Culture, Living

$17.95
Product: (in stock)

Description

Witnessing metamorphosis is an experience that children never forget! This 8-oz cup comes with 5 painted lady (Vanessa cardui) butterfly larvae and their food. The larvae pupate and emerge as adult butterflies in about 30 days. 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 hatches, they will be hungry, and the mallow plant is the perfect source of food for them.

Note: Cannot be shipped into Puerto Rico.
