This spring we decided to order 2 butterfly rearing kits. Seeing as this was our first time ever doing this I ordered 2 rearing kits as we were told usually only half of the larvae will be successful in becoming butterflies. We received 13 larvae, 7 in one container and 6 in the other. We were so excited when all 13 of our larvae made chrysalises and turned into beautiful Painted Lady Butterflies!
Once some broke out of the chrysalis, we added a small cup of diluted honey and a slice of watermelon for the butterflies to eat.
Have you had the opportunity to raise butterflies? We would love to hear from you!
