During seasons with very low or high temperature fluctuations, we reserve the right to hold shipments to ensure the health of our organisms. This may briefly delay shipments during those periods. Carolina makes raising and studying painted lady butterflies easy with our 5-larvae culture cup. We ship larvae in a clear, self-contained 8-oz culture cup so children can easily observe caterpillar development. There is no food to mix and nothing to set up. Caterpillars simply eat the medium supplied in the culture cup until they form a chrysalis. Children then hang up the chrysalises in the habitat. After 7-10 days, the adult butterflies will emerge hungry. Make sure you provide sugar water for the adults to eat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun science lesson! I ordered the butterfly larvae after my kids received a butterfly kit as a gift. The ordering process was easy, we received our larvae promptly, and we now have 5 beautiful butterflies! My kids (ages 3 & 6) have really enjoyed watching the process as the larvae grow, create their cocoons and emerge. I would highly recommend this product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Easy & Educational! My girls thoroughly enjoyed watching this amazingly easy example of the life cycle! They watched over the course of 2 weeks the larvae grow into chubby caterpillars and so on goes the cycle!! I would definitely recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from They all hatched! We got the larvae and followed the easy instructions. We ended up with all our butterlies hatching. The kids loved watching the whole process. We let our butterflies go after a couple of hours after they hatched, that was fun to watch them fly off.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly recommended! We bought the caterpillars and I didn’t expect them to all turn into butterflies but they did! It was easy for me as a mom to use and educational for the kids. We will likely buy them once a year. I highly recommend these!
