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.

And I have, over the past year, purchased SIX of these sets.
4 of them within the last month to six weeks (as of June 2016). The ones purchased last year...are holding up fabulously. The ones from this year? Both have torn in not-seem-areas on the netting with no mistreatment/etc.
I don't know if they changed manufacturers, or what...but maybe steer clear. A 50% failure rate (for the four purchased this year) isn't so great.
I used this in my classroom. I ordered the caterpillars in Aprul, and they were delivered within 3 days. The caterpillars come in two separate jars, 5 to a jar, and they have all the food they need in the jars.
After about 10 days, they turn into chrysalides. Then about 10 days later, they emerge as butterflies. I saw one of the butterflies emerge from its chrysalis!
Every morning when I got to school with my daughters, they would check on the caterpillars/butterflies. As soon as my students arrived, they did the same thing. Some of my students even wanted to skip recess to watch the butterflies.
I will definitely do this again!
