Witness the Amazing Butterfly Life Cycle!

Redeem Your Certificate Online
The Live Butterfly Pavilion includes a certificate for two cups of five caterpillars (ten caterpillars in total). When you are ready to begin your project, visit our website to redeem your Cups of Caterpillars. Your caterpillars will arrive in three to eight business days.
Watch Your Caterpillars Eat and Grow
Ten caterpillars will arrive in two clear plastic cups with all of the nutritious food they need to grow into adult butterflies. Place the cups in a safe place away from direct sunlight. The caterpillars will remain in the cups 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 chrysalides.
Transfer Your Chrysalides to the Butterfly Habitat
The Butterfly Pavilion Habitat is a reusable, 2-foot tall cylindrical mesh container, perfect for up close butterfly viewing! It conveniently hangs from the velcro strap or can be placed on a table or desktop. Once the chrysalides 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.
See Your Butterflies Emerge
Once the butterflies emerge, your children will love to feed them! The habitat's see-through mesh and zippered entry allow for easy maintenance. Place fresh flowers in the habitat for your butterflies to rest on and use the feeding pipette included to drip sugar water, or nectar, on the flowers. Your butterflies will also enjoy fresh slices of watermelon and oranges!
Let Your Butterflies Go!
Enjoy your butterflies for a few days - then experience the excitement of setting them free! Release your butterflies within a week of their emergence when daytime temperatures are above 55 degrees fahrenheit. Simply take the butterfly habitat outdoors, unzip the cover, and let your butterflies go. Butterflies will often visit on little hands and faces before flying away!
Do It Again!
If you have that empty nest feeling, it's easy to raise more butterflies. Your Live Butterfly Pavilion Habitat is reusable; all you need to do is order a Cup of Caterpillars refill! Live caterpillars are shipped to destinations within the Continental USA. We cannot ship live caterpillars to Hawaii, Puerto Rico, Mexico and Canada.

How to raise more than one generation of critters inside:
Since we sent our coupon for larvae out immediately after Christmas, we had butterflies dancing around the pavilion and mating in February when there were no plants outside to collect for the next generation of caterpillars to eat. Anticipating this, I ordered a mallow plant and some additional larval food from Carolina Biological Supply Company at about the time when our caterpillars turned into chrysalises: there is an online store and the stuff to get is the L918 culture medium (144040). This will feed about 80 larvae. (Unfortunately the Insect Lore company, which makes the Pavilion, only sells caterpillar food in small quantities along with additional larvae, which we certainly didn't need).Read more ›
