Releasing or keeping your butterflies.

Butterflies require 20C or higher to fly.  They will be sleepy at lower temperatures.

The butterflies can be kept as pets in your pop-up enclosure for 3-4 weeks or longer but you need to feed them every second day.  It is easy to feed butterflies.   Soak a paper towel in sugary water (1-2 teaspoons of sugar per glass of water) and place it on top of the enclosure. Butterflies are attracted to light and always hang out at the top of the enclosure.  This is where you place your paper towel.  You can also put one at the bottom of the cage, just in case. Additionally, its a very good idea to mist the mesh of your enclosure with water to keep the butterflies hydrated.

What is included:

  • 6 caterpillars
  • Plant cuttings
  • Delivery via Overnight Express Post
