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.

Note: Butterfly larvae are shipped via US Postal Service and can only be shipped within the continental United States (cannot ship to Hawaii). If you place your order before 12pm ET on Wednesday, your larvae will be shipped in 5-7 business days (the next Monday or Tuesday). If you place your order after 12pm ET on Wednesday, your larvae will be shipped in 10-14 days (the following Monday or Tuesday). Expedited shipping for this item is not available.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Evie’s butterflies While our butterflies are yet to hatch we had 7 caterpillars grow large and are currently set up in their chrysalis. My daughter is so excited to see them emerge. Any day now everything looks good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Family Experience We love our caterpillars! Currently, they are in the chrysalis stage, so most of them are hanging on the top of the lid and two fell to the bottom of the cup. We will be transferring them to their butterfly house later today and expect butterflies within a few days. This has been such a great experience for our family. I printed out a booklet so that my son could document the changes that occurred while we watched our caterpillars grow. Instructions and information for the process are clear. The included booklet clearly describes each stage and helps with any situations that pop up, like when the chrysalises fall to the bottom of the cup. We will definitely do it again next year.
