Sso much better than puttong plants in there, no soil to soak up frass, no bugs, etc. Much easier to clean butterfly house, too, just lift them out and clean. I use a can of compressed air to blow out frass and also to clean off the floral tubes stands. Definitely cut leaves at 90 degree angle and lightly knick bark above-I found by using warm water, the leaves don't wilt and last five says unless I have a bunch of large piggies in there!
I got these too late for this butterfly season but I look forward to using them next year. I bought one for my sister too
Great Product! Really useful for raising Monarchs
I have not used these yet but I am looking forward to using them next season as I try to help the monarch butterfly population as they pass through my area.
I've raised monarchs before, but not in deluxe accommodations such as your Baby Butterfly Cage!
My son now has five Monarchs living in one. Two are in their final stages before emerging - very exciting! Although my own garden milkweed leaves were consumed, I never did see a caterpillar so will have to wait until next year to house some. Right now we are visiting a South Carolina beach and seeing a fair number Monarchs. I am impressed with the quality of your products and appreciate your rapid shipping!
