Insect Lore's Live Butterfly Garden® allows you to watch the miracle of metamorphosis up close. This educational kit gives children, students and families an unforgettable opportunity to watch caterpillars change into chrysalides and then emerge as beautiful Painted Lady Butterflies. Raise and feed your very own butterflies and then release them into the wild! The entire transformation from caterpillar to adult butterfly takes about three weeks.

Love this product. Bought it for my daughter and now for granddaughter. One butterfly actually sat on my daughter's finger for quite a while before flying off on the day we released them. You can reuse it - just buy more caterpillars!
When it arrived, we found out that it was just the house. You had to order the caterpillars. The package included a voucher for free caterpillars, but you had to pay an additional $7.95 for shipping. It would be helpful if this information was included in the description.
