Witnessing metamorphosis is an experience that students and children never forget! Twenty-four painted lady (Vanessa cardui) butterfly larvae are shipped in twelve 1-oz rearing chambers (2 larvae per chamber) with food. The larvae pupate and emerge as adult butterflies in about 30 days.

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. Set includes twelve 1-oz containers and care instructions for larvae.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Students enjoyed this product. Quite expensive. Count on some of the caterpillars dying or not emerging fully formed. I had to order extras. Also, food in cup was insufficient. Next time will order more.
