Rated 4 out of 5 by from Will update in spring - still waiting I ordered 6 luna cocoons. 3 were very obviously alive as they wiggled like mad for the first 3 weeks. The other 3 never moved, but I'm still hopeful. After none of them emerged in 3 weeks, I put them into a container in the crisper drawer of my fridge to wait for April. I'll update my review once they're out.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from no moths Purchased six luna moth cocoons for a school science project. Followed all care directions, but has been three weeks and no moths. Will try placing the cocoons in the refrigerator for two weeks per the instructions to see if that breaks diapause. Unfortunately, if the moths do emerge, will not be in time for the project. All in all this has been an expensive disappointment. Also we did not receive any extra cocoons as noted by other reviewers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 2 beautiful luna moths emerged We received 4 luna moth cocoons and were delighted after just 5 days when a moth emerged. About 2 weeks later a second, much larger moth emerged. Both were males. I still have the 2 cocoons in a mesh habitat, hoping that one or both will eventually emerge.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful experience I purchased this as a gift for my husband. We were delightfully surprised to receive four cacoons instead of three. All moths hatched - 2 two days after receiving them and the other 2 about a week or two after receiving them. We enjoyed watching the miracles unfold. Thank you!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not all bad Ordered moth cocoon one hatch prior to arrival opened box it was staring at me. Not all bad as they sent 4 so seeing as I ordered 3 I hoped my kids could see some hatch they never did so I guess that is survival of the fittest. ill contact customer service see if we can get some resolution.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Decent package. Bought (2) 3packs of luna coccoons. Glad to find they put in an additional coccoon in each package. They all hatched 2-12 days after I received them. Unfortunately, they were small, about 2.5-3.25 in wingspan and 3 emerged unsuccessfully (deformed wings and bodies). But all-in-all, i only had 2 pair, and now i have the eggs I need for my studies, and that made my purchase worth it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from On Time & Easy Maintenance my moths came on time & hatched on time as well (within 2 weeks) I bought them for myself just to experience it. I actually really enjoyed it so much. They are a bit messy though, the last moth exploded his waste matter everywhere but that's nature for you :) I hatched two males and one female and the female laid eggs all over their enclosure then they all passed away a week later (please make sure to let their wings harden before you handle them, I made the horrible mistake of handling one of the males and his wings crumpled :/) but overall a very fun & nice experience my siblings loved it!
