Vanessa cardui. Ideal for individual student use. Two larvae are shipped in each 1-oz rearing chamber with food. Larvae pupate and emerge as adults in about 30 days. Select from a set of three 1-oz containers (item #144024) or a set of twelve 1-oz containers (item #144026).

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