Single chrysalises to refill your chrysalis kit and watch the metamorphosis again!
PLEASE NOTE: From July until late October we will be sending Orchard Swallowtail Butterfly chrysalises only to the warmer areas where the temperatures reach above 20C during the day. This butterfly is larger than the Monarch and takes longer (up to 4 weeks) to hatch. Please be patient, it’s worth it! The chrysalis itself can wiggle from side to side, so you know that it’s alive and well. Unlike the Monarch, it does not show its wing pattern but gets darker and softer just before hatching.
Monarch chrysalis will be available again for all areas in October.
You can place an order ahead of time at ANY time using the calendar system below.
BEFORE YOU ORDER: Will it be warm enough to release butterflies? They need 20C or warmer to actively fly. The best place to check ahead of time is here.
