The Live Butterfly Garden

I bought one of those "As Seen On TV" Live Butterfly Garden sets for my daughter recently. I had been leery about ordering it over the phone, so, when I noticed that the Live Butterfly Garden was available at Wal-Mart (and probably Target, Walgreens and other fine retailers) I decided to take a chance and purchase it. The Live Butterfly Garden doesn't come with caterpillars. You have to enter a redemption code into a website form and fork over $5 for shipping and you'll get five caterpillars in the mail. My daughter took care of naming them: Carly, Sam, Fred, Phineas and Ferb.

The caterpillar package that comes in the mail includes everything you need to house and feed them for a few days. The one thing my daughter and I learned very quickly is that caterpillars poop a lot. It took a little over a week, but eventually the caterpillars got tired of wallowing in their own filth and climbed to the top of their little shelter and began to spin chrysalises. Looks like we're ready to move them to the butterfly habitat and wait for them to emerge.
