See an Amazing Transformation
5 caterpillars will arrive in a clear plastic cup with all of the nutritious food they need to grow into beautiful Painted Lady Butterflies. 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 chrysalides.
Raise Your Very Own Butterflies
The Insect Lore butterfly 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 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. Everyone will want to keep a close eye on the habitat so they can witness the fascinating birth of their Painted Lady Butterflies.
Once your butterflies have emerged from the chrysalides, place fresh flowers in the habitat for your butterflies to rest on. Use the feeding pipette included to drip sugar water, or nectar, on the flowers. Watch your butterflies eagerly sip the nectar with their long proboscises. Butterflies also love to feed from fresh slices of watermelon and oranges.
Set Your Butterflies Free
Enjoy your butterflies for a few days, and then experience the excitement of letting them go to continue their amazing life cycle. Release your butterflies within a week of their emergence from the chrysalides when daytime temperatures are above 55 degrees. Simply take the butterfly habitat out to your yard, unzip the cover, and let your butterflies go. Butterflies will often land on little hands and faces before flying away. Watch for your butterfly friends, as they may decide to remain in your garden for a few days.

Two of them refused to leave her open hand so we kept them a few extra days before trying again. This time they did fly off. The last one to leave came back several days later and flew around while she played outside. We knew it was the same one because of the mark on its wing. Great experience and so very easy to care for.
But in spite of that, this is a GREAT little science kit. My 4 year old son was fascinated by the caterpillars that arrived. They come sealed in a little plastic tub with a layer of food on the bottom, so you don't have to feed them or tend to them at all, just make sure they are neither too hot nor cold, and watch them grow! They eat the food on the bottom and hang on the top and turn into chrysalises. About a week later they turn into butterflies, and then you can feed them fruit or sugar water, which is a lot of fun too.
We received 6 caterpillars and all 6 of them turned into butterflies. So beautiful and really great learning for the little ones (and us big ones too).
A note: Make sure you are going to be home for at least 3 weeks when you order the butterflies. If you go out of town you might miss the transformation, and also once they turn into butterflies you need to be home to feed them.
. The kit was very informative and easy to follow where it even has many answered FAQ. I believe the time frame for the hatch was about four weeks so plan accordingly. With the five worms that I received, all five hatched into beautiful butterflies. It was amusing to see how fast the worms grew within just a few days they would keep doubling in size. Prior to the butterflies emerging from their cocoon, make sure that you cover the base of the net wth several pieces of paper because the red liquid that the butterflies drip could possibly leak through the napkin and stain the net. Unfortunately during our release, they didn't want to stick around and quickly flew away.
The kit worked great and was worth the experience. I had also purchased the ladybug kit and that was even easier to care for.
