The Painted Lady Butterfly
The Painted Lady Butterfly is a very popular butterfly. It is easy to care for and it is readily available for you to raise at home. You can buy one of the butterfly garden kits and then order your painted lady caterpillars and in a matter of a couple of weeks your painted ladies will hatch.
This is exactly what I did. I bought one of the butterfly kits in a toy store and then sent away for my caterpillars. It was a fun learning experience.
Here is a picture of one of the butterflies that I hatched.
The life cycle of the Painted Lady Butterfly:
There are four steps in the life cycle and the whole cycle takes about 21 Days to complete.
This is the exact product that I ordered. It is called the Butterfly treehouse. It also comes with a pretty neat DVD.
