Description

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.

Note: Painted lady butterflies cannot be released in CT, ND, and WA. Cannot be shipped into Puerto Rico.
