They have all reached the pupae stage. The instructions said to leave them for a couple of days before transferring them to the butterfly cage. I nipped out to Homebase this morning & purchased a cheep house plant (& some other plants for the garden, well you know one must do there bit for the planet 😀, so that made the car journey worthwhile & Mum wanted some bits too)
I popped up the butterfly cage, made sure the plant was well watered ( adding some damp kitchen towel, in a small dish, hopefully keeping it damp). I had a quilting flower pin ready to pin the paper to the top.
I gingerly removed the lid, & attempted to remove the paper. Nowhere in the instructions does it prepare you for what happens next! 😳 The pupae start to shake very violently!!! Only being attached to the paper with what looks like a very thin thread , I got them transferred, pinned in place & the lid zipped up🤓
They did keep shaking for a bit. I suppose I wouldn’t want to be disturbed either, atleast they have stopped now.
