Let customers speak for us 👍👎🏾

Great floral tubes

These are solid and just what I needed.

New idea

So glad for bigger sizes thanks for anticipating this.


This is perfect. Sturdier than paper towels for cleaning.


Fully washed it and ready for spring.

Excellent for housing many future butterflies!

We love this company and the great customer service we receive as well. This is an excellent tower and we have an older one and now a newer one and love watching our swallowtails develop in all stages in here! They all thrive in these towers and we haven't lost any because they stay safe inside...we had a lot this year and just kept our parsley and dill potted plants in these once we see there are caterpillars. Love the viewing window and the zippered front is so easy to let down when it's time to let the butterflies out. The very best habitat for them!
