Carolina makes it easy to teach the concept of life cycle with live painted lady butterflies! This 8-oz cup comes with 5 Vanessa cardui butterfly larvae and their food. The larvae pupate and emerge as adult butterflies in about 30 days. Witnessing metamorphosis is an experience that children never forget! 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 hatch, they will be hungry, and the mallow plant is the perfect source of food for them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Experience for Kids I recently purchased the Painted Lady 5-Larvae for my grandchildren to share in the experience with the concept of life cycle of the painted lady butterflies. I ordered the 8 oz cup that has all the food - ( the process was fun and easy) , the best part was watching the excitement of the kids when the butterflys emerged in as little as 2-3 weeks. They could not wait to check on them every day and even named them all. Great fun for the kids and family, very educational. I highly recommend Carolina Biological Supply Company.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great success and gained experience I bought my first order of Painted Lady caterpillars last summer. All of them became butterflies! I shared their release with my grandchildren. They took two out of the habitat on their fingers and were very excited to pose for a photo of this event. This year I only had 3 survivals, but now I believe it was due to my mis-interpretation of their condition after they became a chrysalis. 3 of them fell off the lid. I thought they were not going to turn and threw them away. :-( I will order again next year and expect a better result because I think I have learned to understand their ability to survive even after they fall off the lid. Thank you for making this experience available.

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 Amazing Teachable Moments This is the second time I bought Painted Lady caterpillars to watch develop into butterflies with my three grandkids. The seven year-old was amused and amazed as all six of the caterpillars emerged from coccoons as adult butterflies. It was an incredible learning experience to share with my grand children. The butterflies were active in their cage and we saw watched them all eating the nectar we made.The butterfly release into a natural area was a grand family celebration. Long may you live Painted Ladies.
