Become part of nature and see the wonder of how a caterpillar becomes a butterfly up close!
In the butterfly garden you can grow your own butterflies. You can choose to let order the caterpillars yourself or you can opt to let Ant's Kingdom do that for you. If you choose the latter we will arrange the order and payment of the caterpillars and inform you about the shipment from the grower. Want to arrange this yourself, you will then receive a coupon code in the set. These can be filled in at the supplier's website. You pay the shipping and handling charges by PayPal or credit card. The caterpillars are then sent directly by the growers of Insect Lore.
Usually in about a week, you'll receive five fresh caterpillars with special food sent from our grower (in some cases it may take a little longer depending on the culture). Now you can really get started. The breeding of butterflies is seasonal and caterpillars are available from March to September.
First the caterpillars get their own food (provided) so they can grow well. Then they hang their heads in crystalline spun cocoons. In the final phase, they emerge as beautiful butterflies. you can then observe them a few days and let them free.
The butterfly garden is reusable and after the fledging of the butterflies it's also a perfect stay for other insects such as ladybugs, praying mantises or walking sticks.
