This educational kit gives children, students and families an unforgettable opportunity to watch caterpillars change into chrysalides 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 between 3 and 5 weeks to complete.
Just redeem the unique code on the voucher included and Insect Lore will post your cup of 3-5 baby caterpillars out to you for a small fee of £2.99.
Your caterpillars will arrive contained in a small cup along with all the food and nutrients they need. Once grown they will transform into a chrysalis, when they 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. Observe your beautiful Painted Ladies for up to 3 days before releasing them into nature so the cycle can continue.
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.
The Live Butterfly Garden Includes:
Pop-up, reusable 30cm tall mesh habitat perfect for butterfly viewing!
Voucher for 3-5 live caterpillars, £2.99 fee to pay upon redemption (caterpillars available March to Mid-September). Due to high demand you may need to order at least 1 month in advance for the caterpillars when you redeem the voucher online
