The metamorphosis of butterflies
Initially, the butterfly caterpillar is about the same size as the butterfly egg. Within two weeks they grow up to 4 cm. The butterfly caterpillar eats more and more every day.
In order to pupate the butterfly caterpillars climb up the wall of the caterpillar breeding cup to attach themselves by their abdomen, then they will hang upside down and forming a J-shape. It will take about an entire day for the butterfly caterpillars to develop into a chrysalis.
Hatching from the chrysalis, the butterfly wings will be wet and hanging down in order to get them inflated. After a short time, the wings will dry and harden.

Breeding butterflies is a great event for the entire family, primary schools, and kindergartens. The metamorphosis with the numerous transformations from caterpillar to butterfly is very impressing for children as well as adults.
Caterpillars are available from beginning of April to the end of September.
The Butterfly Breeding Kit is often purchased for educational purposes for children.
The children learn about the metamorphosis of the Painted Lady butterflies by raising butterfly caterpillars.
As soon as you have purchased the caterpillars, we will send them out in a well-packed caterpillar cup. There is enough caterpillar food in the caterpillar cup. The caterpillars will stay in the caterpillar cup until they have pupated.
The lid of the caterpillar cup should remain closed until pupation. To ensure the highest possible survival rate. You can carefully touch the cup with the caterpillars from outside.
Do not jerk the cup with the caterpillars or butterfly pupae. Never open the lid to stroke the caterpillars. This would disturb the caterpillar development and might enable infectional contamination destroying the caterpillars.
The only reason to open the lid is to move the butterfly pupae. In order to do this, take the cloth on which the butterfly pupae are hanging and hang it in the Butterfly Habitat. After the butterflies have hatched from the chrysalis, you can open the Butterfly Habitat and let the butterflies fly in the wild.
To ensure the highest possible survival rate, avoid extreme temperature fluctuations and direct sunlight. Remove the silk fabrics and insect droppings from the butterfly pupae before hanging the butterfly pupa in the Butterfly Habitat.
In nature, only 5 % of butterfly eggs develop into butterflies. Under breeding conditions, a survival rate of around 80 % can be expected.
The young caterpillars are shipped a few days after hatching from the egg. We do not ship butterfly eggs or butterfly pupae.
The holes in the lid provide the caterpillars sufficiently with fresh air.
The caterpillars do not need any additional water. The moisture contained in the caterpillar food is enough.
Besides water the caterpillar food is rich on micronutrients, a mix of roasted soy meal, plant material, vitamins, and minerals.
You do not have to take care of the caterpillars every day. You can leave the butterfly caterpillars alone for a weekend. Just make sure that direct sunlight is avoided. Otherwise condensation could come up in the breeding cup. Condensation can make caterpillars ill.
The life span of the Painted Lady butterfly is approximately 1-2 months. After about a week after the butterflies have hatched, the female Painted Lady butterflies lay the previously fertilized butterfly eggs. After about a week a tiny caterpillar hatches from the butterfly egg. The young caterpillar immediately begins to search for food. During the next two to three weeks the caterpillars grow exponentially. At the end of the caterpillar stage the caterpillar pupates. The butterfly pupa hatches into a colorful butterfly after about a week.
