Give every child the Gift of Metamorphosis with the Live Butterfly Garden!

Choose to receive the kit with either a voucher, where you or the recipient have the flexibility to start raising butterflies when ready, or with LIVE caterpillars immediately (by selecting a send out date).  Caterpillars are available from March to mid-September only.

Watch the Miracle of Metamorphosis Up Close

This educational kit gives children, students and families an unforgettable opportunity to watch caterpillars change into chrysalides and then emerge as beautiful Painted Lady Butterflies. Raise and feed your very own butterflies and then release them into the wild! The entire transformation from caterpillar to adult butterfly takes about three to five weeks.

See An Amazing Transformation

3-5 caterpillars (a live butterfly culture) will arrive in a clear plastic cup (WHEN YOU HAVE REDEEMED THE VOUCHER) with all of the nutritious food they need. Place the cup in a safe place away from direct sunlight. The caterpillars will remain in the cup and will eat, spin silk and grow to TEN times their original size! After seven to ten days they will hang upside down and harden into chrysalides (chrysalides are also known as pupae).

Raise Your Very Own Butterflies

Once the chrysalides have hardened, gently move them to the pop-up butterfly habitat. It will take about seven to ten more days for them to complete the transformation to adult butterflies.

The Butterfly Garden Habitat is a reusable, cylindrical mesh container perfect for up-close butterfly viewing! When not in use it folds flat for easy storage. Then when you wish to raise more butterflies, just order a refill Cup of Caterpillars.

The Live Butterfly Garden Includes:

  • Pop-up, reusable 30cm tall super clear mesh habitat
  • voucher to redeem for caterpillars (caterpillars available March to mid-September)
  • Feeding Pipette
  • Complete instruction guide
  • Chrysalis station
  • Insect Lore sugar packet to make your very own butterfly nectar (arrives with the caterpillars)
