Product Description

Watch caterpillars become butterflies right before your very eyes! With this special mesh habitat and detailed instructions, it's easy and fun to care for your own metamorphosing butterflies.
Experience the miracle of metamorphosis!

Use the included coupon to order your own cup of LIVE caterpillars and then watch for the next ten to twelve days as they squirm around and grow (Up to ten times their size!) while feeding on the food that's included in the cup.

All you need to do is keep them out of direct sunlight and make sure they're not too hot or too cold!

Then, something amazing happens - Covering themselves with strands of silk, the caterpillars will hang upside down from the lid and actually harden into chrysalides.

(Here's where the pop-up butterfly habitat comes in.)

Carefully move the chrysalides into the habitat and then wait for another seven to ten days.

Finally - THE MIRACLE! - Beautiful Painted Lady Butterflies will magically emerge from the cocoons, spread their wings, and begin to flutter around the mesh container excitedly!

Follow along with the detailed instructions to learn how to make a sugary nectar for the butterflies to eat.

You can even place flowers in the habitat and cover them with the nectar to get the butterflies used to finding food from flowers!

Ready to enjoy the miracle all over again? - Once it's above fifty-five degrees outside, you can set the butterflies free and then order yourself another batch of caterpillars.

You'll be a real butterfly farmer!

Complete with detailed instructions and all the tools you need to care for your butterflies, the Butterfly Garden is a fun, easy, and beautiful experience kids will cherish forever.
