Our large kit comes with everything you need to take care of your 10 live Painted Lady caterpillars from reception to release! This includes food for caterpillars, instructions, and a large enclosure to keep your Chrysalis in as they emerge and observe the adult butterflies. 

These 10 caterpillars come in 2 cups of 5, and additional cups can be ordered for only $11 extra (see order options dropdown above). We guarantee 4/5 caterpillars to reach healthy adulthood! 

It takes about 12 days on average for the caterpillars to reach the chrysalis stage, and another 8-10 days for them to emerge as live butterflies. You can plan on the whole process taking 3 - 4 weeks from start to finish. If timing is a concern, you may place your order and pick it up later this Spring (just let us know in the comment box as you check out)!

This is our medium sized enclosure, measuring 12" which allows for easy observation of the amazing process, perfect for family and classroom settings. This enclosure is collapsible and can be reused with our other species of butterflies! Cabbage White, Red Admiral, Clouded Sulfur, and Monarch (Availability of Monarchs varies, usually available June 1st). 

Order will be fulfilled/shipped starting Thursday, March 28th. Contact us or mention details in order notes with a special request or order early for your classroom or family activity. 

This kit is available from April - Oct, weather permitting.
