The Next Generation
You might recall that I visited The Butterfly Conservatory in Massachusetts. While there, I purchased this egg case
housed in a sealed plastic container.
The instructions say keep it in the fridge till the 15th of April,
then transfer it to a room temperature location and wait.
Approximately 100-300 babies will hatch in May (4-6 weeks). It's extremely important to take the container outside to the garden quickly and sprinkle them around, because overcrowded babies will begin to eat each other if you don't.
