Butterfly Garden

We bought Rieley a butterfly garden a while back. Tim, ordered the caterpillars and they have arrived. They have started out really small. Now, we watch them daily as they eat the food in the container and grow. In 7-10 days, they are suppose to attach themselves to the lid and form their caccoons. Then, we will transfer them into the hanging net basket provided to us and watch as they become Painted Lady Butterflies.
Follow along with us as we grow butterflies.
We are one week into watching them grow and change, wow, they grow fast. They are over an inch long each and making alot of silk, plus working their way up to the lid. Looking forward to watching them form their crystallis's.
