Life Cycle Kits
Watch the amazing transformation from caterpillar to beautiful butterfly. The caterpillars eat an instant diet throughout their larval (caterpillar) stage, then pupate (make their chrysalis) on the top attachment pad. The pad is then removed (with pupae attached) to a net cage and the wait begins for that last transformation to occur. To order any of the life cycle kits or accessories below, please contact us via phone or email.

Wings of Enchantment Butterfly Farm guarantees that your caterpillars/chrysalides were living, healthy specimens and carefully packaged for safe arrival. However, they are living organisms and some circumstances are simply unpredictable and beyond our control. Therefore we cannot guarantee that all caterpillars will survive to become adults. It has been our experience that when you follow the instructions included with your order you will have a positive experience.We do not replace caterpillars unless they do not ARRIVE as living specimens. In the unlikely event that there is a problem, we must be contacted within four hours of receipt and inspection of your order. Replacements will not be provided unless we are contacted immediately and provided with a date stamped photo. Many factors influence the complete metamorphosis of a butterfly and for those reasons we cannot guarantee the successful emergence of each chrysalis.Should you experience problems after the arrival of your shipment, please contact us so we can trouble shoot and try to help you determine the cause of the problem.
