Mallow Plant, Living

(in stock)


A natural host for the painted lady butterfly, this plant provides an excellent opportunity for scientific inquiry. Students can explore such questions as:

  • Will caterpillars prefer the host plant to artificial diet?
  • Is rate of development different on different plants?
  • Are painted lady butterfllies particular about where they lay their eggs?
Note: A single mallow plant is not sufficient to feed larvae to adulthood. For raising larvae, use our Painted Lady Culture Medium (item #144043).
