We raised the caterpillars in a large glass pitcher but then carefully transferred the coccoons to a stick (hung between two pieces of wood) for better viewing.
I can’t get over those pure gold specks on the cocoons!
When the last one was about to hatch,
‘Zilla demanded we bring it to school (she didn’t want to miss it!)
I was so nervous about capturing the caterpillars, I would’ve felt so bad if they didn’t survive! But it was very easy you basically just give them plenty of milkweed and a roof from which to hang from and they will do the rest!
Consider this a PSA for growing milkweed (the only things monarchs can eat)!
