    Hi Vivi, did you manage to find any swan plants in CHCH? I also am desperate for some, am running very low and have tried a lot of places around CHCH and they’ve all told me that I won’t be able to find any 🙁 I’m still holding out hope!

    Thanks all. I do have many in the 2plus cm category so will have a go at the pumpkin.
    My phone number is 033372825 or email vviieenn@gmail.com

    thanks

    Yes, they need to be in their last instar, i.e. about 2cm long, to successfully pupate if they’re fed pumpkin.

    Hope someone from Chch might pick up on your message Vivi. How would they contact you? You might like to leave some contact details here.

    From my experiences, in order to get ‘pillars to eat pumpkin in this way, they have to be of a certain size (not tiny) and be put in sealable container with the pumpkin to force them to eat it. They will then eat it and grow and pupate.

    You could try a mixed diet of thinly sliced pumpkin and swan plant leaves.

    You could also try to find other types of milkweed.
