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.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not so awesome I bought this for my mom's birthday, 2 lived out of the 1st batch and 2 lived out of the 2nd batch. Not a very good survival ratio for the money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Watchngt he process I bought these so that my grandchildren could experienced the butterfly life cycle up close & personal. We did this a few years ago, as well. We have created a butterfly habitat in our tiny, suburban back yard.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Painted lady My class of preschoolers were inspired. I teach children with autism and other disabilities. The butterflies inspired our children who are nonverbal to make word approximations to label the stages. One of my professors told us to give young children experiences. This was a great way to give children experiences.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We loved it! This was a great project for my kids at home to be able to observe nature at its best right in their own living room was just wonderful! We enjoyed watching them grow and even held them when they turned into beautiful butterflies. All 6 caterpillars were healthy and survived. They all turned into beautiful butterflies. The package was great with everything you need to begin this fun project. I definitely recommend this.
