Description

Experience the magic of metamorphosis with our comprehensive Butterfly Breeding Kit! Watch as caterpillars transform into beautiful butterflies right before your eyes. This Butterfly Breeding Kit includes 10-14 butterfly caterpillars, two Caterpillar Cups with food, a Large Butterfly Habitat (40x40x60 cm) and detailed online instructions to guide you through the process. The Large Butterfly Habitat is specially designed to provide the perfect environment for the pupae to form and for the butterflies to emerge and inflate their wings.

We understand that timing is important, so we offer the option to choose your desired shipping date at checkout. We ship the Butterfly Breeding Kit weekly and the development from caterpillar to butterfly takes approximately 3-4 weeks, depending on room temperature.

This Butterfly Breeding Kit is suitable for children aged 3 and up and is a great way for both children and adults to learn about the incredible process of metamorphosis. With at least 8 butterflies expected to develop from the 10-14 caterpillars, there will be plenty to observe and release back into nature. Order yours today and start your own butterfly breeding journey!

This Butterfly Breeding Kit includes:

  • 10-14 caterpillars.
  • Two cups of caterpillar food.
  • Large Butterfly Habitat (40 x 40 x 60 cm).
  • Online instructions.
  • Educational materials for school, kindergarten, and home. This educational material is available in French, German, and English.

With this Butterfly Breeding Kit, you contribute to the re-establishment of native butterflies and the pollination of wildflowers.

For those on a budget, we also offer a Butterfly Rearing Kit which comes with a smaller habitat at a more affordable price.

Great kit for young and old, we let 5 Painted lady butterflies into nature and were all totally fascinated how a small caterpillar becomes a beautiful butterfly. Original language: German, translated by buy-butterflies.com

The project was great !!! In June, the caterpillars moved into our classroom. We got them nettles and prepared the "enclosure" for them. They shed their skin very quickly and then pupated on the lid. In the meantime, word had spread around the school that there were caterpillars in our class and every day at break time children came to look. The butterflies ate their way out of the shell and were released on the butterfly bush in the schoolyard. It was just beautiful. My favourite thing was to see how the butterflies gradually pumped their colour into their wings and that even a fallen chrysalis developed into a finished butterfly. Its wings looked stunted at first, but after the weekend it did. Thank you very much !!! The children have learned a lot and now they are more aware of the butterfly bush, they look and don't tear off any more flowers. Original language: German, translated by buy-butterflies.com

Everything worked out great. I ordered it for our children in kindergarten. Everything arrived on time and was well explained. I would like to have a more detailed explanation on paper so that I can answer the children's questions immediately and don't have to go to the computer first. But it's really just a small suggestion. Almost all the caterpillars have pupated. We are still waiting for 2 stragglers. Today we counted 9 butterflies. One is still hatching at the moment. We will definitely do it again next year. It has been a great experience so far, even for us adults, and the children are totally enthusiastic. We bought the large habitat and it is ideal for observing. The few euros more for the big one are definitely worth it. Original language: German, translated by buy-butterflies.com

Fast delivery. There were 5 or 6 worms per cup. At first I thought they were dead because they seemed to be lying in the agar bottom. Then, however, the positions of the threads changed and became larger. I added another caterpillar that I found. Interesting how they eventually crawled up the walls and pupated. The 12 caterpillars became 11 cocoons. One caterpillar died. The pupae don't just hang around either. You can tease them. We released 6 butterflies yesterday. A great experience. They didn't need the sugar solution at all, but it was available. I am looking forward to the rest of them hatching soon. Original language: German, translated by buy-butterflies.com

We bought the kit for our day care centre. The delivery went as advertised. All the little caterpillars arrived safely. It was interesting to observe that the really very small caterpillars grew bigger every day. Of the total of 14 caterpillars, 12 made it to pupation and another 10 to the finished butterfly. For the children it was an exciting experience to see how something inconspicuously tiny can become something so big and beautiful. Original language: German, translated by buy-butterflies.com

After I got a replacement delivery, everything went great. Now 14 pupae are hanging on the net and will soon become butterflies. After two days I took the caterpillars out of the cup into the habitat and fed them daily with fresh nettles, which I think the caterpillars really liked.

  3. J’adore le kit d’élevage de papillons ! C’est une expérience incroyable pour les enfants et les adultes. Le processus de transformation des chenilles en magnifiques papillons est fascinant à observer. Le kit est très bien conçu et facile à utiliser, avec des instructions claires.

    Le matériel fourni est de grande qualité, et j’apprécie particulièrement le souci du bien-être des papillons tout au long du processus. C’est une expérience éducative et enrichissante pour toute la famille.

    Je recommande vivement le kit d’élevage de papillons à tous ceux qui cherchent une activité éducative et amusante. C’est un excellent moyen d’apprécier la beauté de la nature de plus près.

Q & A

what type of butterflies are they? ani asked on 17. May 2024

Hello Ani,

Thank you for your question.

We are selling Painted Lady butterfly kits, so the caterpillars in the rearing kit are caterpillars of the Painted Lady butterfly (Vanessa cardui).

If you have any further questions, feel free to ask.

Best regards,
