Witness the magic of biology as tiny larvae bloom into beautiful Painted Lady butterflies. This Butterfly Farm® is STEM Authenticated, and provides children with a hands-on opportunity to explore, grow, and learn about the natural world.
The newest Insect Lore butterfly kit includes a one-of-a-kind Butterfly Farm™ habitat, everything you need to raise your own caterpillars, and a voucher to redeem for your free cup of five caterpillars with all the food they need at no additional fee! There is no redemption fee and shipping is included. The voucher never expires.
Your larvae will be busily eating, molting, and growing for about a week to ten days. Once they have stored enough energy, they will attach themselves to the walls of their habitat to begin the chrysalildes stage of their lives. Once the adult butterflies emerge from the pupas and extend their delicate new wings, they will rely on you to provide their food. Then set them free into your backyard, where they will help pollinate our world.
Please check the weather in your area. Daytime temperatures must be 55 degrees Fahrenheit or above when you release your butterflies.
