Raising Painted Lady Butterflies…
This is the Live Butterfly Kit -: shipped with 5 Painted Lady Caterpillars that I purchased a few years back. Each year since my initial purchase, I have just purchase the 5 Live Caterpillars Kit Refill . Always a hit and I love doing this as much as the kids!
There are 4 stages of Life for a Painted Lady
1.) The Egg (3-5 days)
2.) The Larva or Caterpillar Comes Out! (5-10 days)
3.) The Chrysalis—Metamorphosis Begins (7-10 days)
4.) The Butterfly Emerges! (2 weeks)
