The Painted Lady butterfly culture kits were first offered to West 40 schools in 1989. Last year, well over 15,000 students enjoyed seeing these beautiful butterflies develop!
Each Painted Lady butterfly kit contains 3 to 5 tiny caterpillars in a sealed vial with enough nutrients to complete their development. The caterpillars require about 3 weeks to mature into beautiful butterflies. Our supplier guarantees at least 3 perfect Painted Ladies per kit. A mid-April delivery of the kits ensures that your children can view the entire growth process before school ends!!
