Fat Cat Floral Tubes and racks

great product

Great tube addition

Tony, thanks so much for suggesting these tubes for the gigantica milkweed; they work perfectly. I had not purchased any yet because my plants had died back a bit and instead of having the usual very large leaves, I was having to cut the stalk about 4 leaves from the top of each stem and these cuttings were usually 1/2" or large in diameter. But they work, the top are pliable enough that I can get these really large stems into them and so far, none have ripped. I am absolutely going to keep buying these now. Thanks again!

LONG RACKS AND FAT CAT TUBES

So much easier to maintain milkweed for cats. Have the white racks, and two different yellow ones plus the fat cat tubes. Really a great addition to raising Monarchs!

FAT CAT Floral Tubes

The FAT CAT Floral Tubes are exactly what I needed for the Common Milkweed leaves. The leaves stayed fresh and gave the Monarchs ample time to eat it all.

Tube size is so much better than the small floral tubes

I really like the size of these floral tubes. You don't need to refill them as often. I do have one issue with them that I didn't like. I raise a lot of Monarchs, and I get multiple cats on a cutting. When I need to remove the entire cutting but still have a cat on part of a stem, the cap fits so tight that I really have to pull. I've knocked a couple of cats off doing this before I realized this would happen. I ended up cutting the leaves off that had cats on them and replaced the stems. I use the racks, but I also had a cat make a J in it. I waited several days to be sure his chrysalis was hardened, and I carefully removed it. Unfortunately, this chrysalis never eclosed. I ended up wrapping the racks in plastic wrap, but this makes it hard to get out the frass. I'll come up with something else next year to hold the tubes.

<p></p><p>Hi Kathleen, thank you for your review and feedback, for the long peg racks we've used disposable shower caps to prevent this issue:</p>

Great enclosure

Thank you for this excellent enclosure that is a little smaller than my others.

Wonderful products

Thank you so much for your enclosures and poo poo platters! They’re all good quality and just what I need to care for my butterfly caterpillars.

Nice size

These will be perfect for days when I have to release a butter while I am at work because the mornings are a bit too cold. No more driving back home to release them into the sunshine.

Good quality & gets the job done.
