Butterfly Garden

Item# LM-BFLYGAR

This live butterfly garden kit from Insect Lore allows you to observe Painted Lady caterpillars for about three weeks as they mature, change into chrysalises, and finally emerge as beautiful butterflies. Rearing live Painted Lady butterflies is a fascinating way to study insect metamorphosis! When they are fully grown, you can release the butterflies into your backyard.

The butterfly garden kit includes a colorful reusable pop-up habitat (11" tall), instructions, interesting butterfly information, and a coupon to redeem for 3-5 live butterfly larvae (caterpillars) with special food. There is a $5 fee to redeem the butterfly larvae coupon. Allow 2-3 weeks to receive live culture after redeeming the coupon online.)

For more than 40 years, parents, kids, teachers, and students have enjoyed watching the miracle of metamorphosis with this unforgettable kit! Insect Lore guarantees that at least three of the larvae will successfully metamorphose into adult butterflies, so you're guaranteed to witness the wonder of life cycles.

Simple and fun Review by
The garden materials arrived in perfect condition. I had the caterpillars sent by UPS, which is significantly more expensive, but well worth it to lessen the risk of "roasted caterpillars" in the mailbox. Of the five, one died soon after arrival, and another died in its chrysalis. The instructions were quite clear and were followed to the letter. It was particularly nice to see follow up emails from Insect Lore relevant to the expected stages of development, and recommended care. Three lovely Painted Lady butterflies, two male and on female, were happily released and apparently healthy. Next up, praying mantises!!
Great Observation Project Review by
We really enjoyed watching our caterpillars grow and go through their metamorphosis. We are currently watching a praying mantis in our butterfly garden. We are looking forward to doing butterflies again in the near future.
A whole lotta fun Review by
I bought the butterfly garden as a gift for my girlfriend who is in love with butterflies. She absolutely loved the idea and thought it was out of the box. Great gift idea for adults, not just for children.
What fun with grandchildren Review by
I ordered this to do with my grandchildren while I was staying with them. We had a ball watching the caterpillars and later installing them in the butterfly garden. I had to leave before they became butterflies but we had many fun calls about their metamorphosis and later release.
Butterfly garden Review by
I bought this as a present for my 4 year old nephew, who had very little interest in them until they became butterflies and especially when we released them. The concept of a creature that changes from one "ugly" and "icky" form into something so beautiful during it's life was something I was excited to teach him; that ugly things can be/become beautiful. The caterpillars were so much smaller than expected but grew almost double in size overnight. 3 weeks later they emerged as beautiful butterflies. He loved releasing them into his backyard and really didn't want to let them go. He loved it, and all the other parents at the party were impressed (and a little envious) with the gift. Best gift ever!
