This educational kit gives children, students and families an unforgettable opportunity to watch caterpillars change into chrysalids and then emerge as beautiful Painted Lady Butterflies. Raise and feed your very own butterflies and then release them into the wild. The entire transformation from caterpillar to adult butterfly takes about three to five weeks. The Butterfly Garden Habitat is a reusable, cylindrical mesh container perfect for up close butterfly viewing. When not in use it folds flat for easy storage. Once the chrysalids have hardened, gently move them to the pop-up butterfly habitat. It will take about seven to ten more days for them to complete the transformation to adult butterflies.
The kit does not contain the caterpillars, you can send off for them by using the certificate included and pay postage of 3.99. The Butterfly Garden with certificate for caterpillars is a good option if you are not sure when you will be ready to receive and raise your butterfly larvae. 10 caterpillars (a live butterfly culture) will arrive in a clear plastic cup with all of the nutritious food they need. Place the cup in a safe place away from direct sunlight. The caterpillars will remain in the cup and will eat, spin silk and grow to TEN times their original size. After seven to ten days they will hang upside down and harden into chrysalids (chrysalids are also known as pupae). Certificate for painted lady caterpillars with their special food will be delivered to your doorstep.
Redeemable on-line or by post.
