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 Painted butterflies I bought the larvae culture for my grand daughters who love butterflies. This was the best experiment I have done with them they have been calling with so many questions and of course I just Google it to answer them. I am very excited seeing how my grand daughters have reacted to the growth of the larvae. Soon they will have there butterflies

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great learning for all ages I received this as a gift and used it as a science activity for my kindergartener and preschooler. They really enjoyed observing the life cycle of these butterflies. It made for an interesting and engaging science lesson every day that we made observations!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved it! We bought this kit last month for our 4 year old daughter. It was fantastic!! She was able to watch the caterpillars grow, then form their chrysalis, and turn into beautiful butterflies. It was such an exciting experience for her. Highly recommend!
