    I’ve been trying to find people with swan plants in their garden to take some of my caterpillars

    and havent found anyone – I have notices at my gym and and cafe and stationery shop. Have about 50 plants and almost all the leaves have been eaten (eggs too). I live in Seatoun.

    Caryl, friend just emailed me unfortunately thinks he may not have enough for his too…

    He just also reminded me (and has had lots of success and no problems   )Do you know about feeding pumpkin/cucumber to the older ones (late instar.. over 2cm I believe)

    goggle “feeding pumpkin to monarchs” there is lots of info, probably some old posts on there too

    best of luck!

    Katrina 🙂




    Between 6 and 8am tomorrow on k Ruud Kleinpaste has a session. I’m sure if you phoned him and told him of your plight, you might get some feedback from people who could help.

    Just an idea!

    there is a woman called Catherine in Upper Hutt who contacted Jacqui a while ago…maybe a month ago…… saying she had loads of plants but no caterpillars. Email Worth a try perhaps.
