Each order includes 1 pupa so that you can hatch these marvelous creatures. Our easy-to-follow instructions make it simple to experience their metamorphosis from pupa to butterfly. Perfect if this isn’t your first time raising butterflies.
If you’ve purchased a kit before or already have a net cage, check out our refill kit here, which includes everything the Monarch Butterfly Raising Kit has, minus the net cage. A net cage can be added if you do not already have one to experience the monarchs emerging from the pupa.
These kits are designed for every environment, whether at home, school, retirement home, community center, or otherwise. The kits also make incredible gifts for burgeoning enthusiasts, teaching lessons about life-cycles, transformation, and growth…often a child’s first experience nurturing the development of a wild creature in a time where there is more focus on screens rather than what’s all around us.
We begin shipping these kits from the end of July until September each year, weather and season permitting.
The Monarch Pupa/Chrysalis order includes:
- A minimum of 1 Monarch pupa (with an option to add as many more as you’d like)
- A special note from the MonarchButterflies.com team
- Basic instructions with a QR code for detailed and breed-specific instructions along with our blog that has continually increased information
- An Indigenous poem to be read at the time of the butterfly release
Optional: Small or Large Mesh Cage
