    Swan plants. There is a man by the Queen Street swimming pool, Pukekohe, who sells 4 plants for $10.00.

    Someone just asked that the other day… see if they’ve posted a response. And I suggest when you get the new ones you let the caterpillars transfer themselves – then put the pots indoors where female butterflies can’t lay any more eggs on them.

    Having swan plants is a lesson in planning and management! 🙂
