    Wonderful news regarding this chrysalis. We have been keeping it in a large sealed preserving jar in case it harboured a parasite. This morning, my husband discovered a newly hatched butterfly at the top of the jar which he quickly freed and placed on a plant outside, it looks quite healthy and will check later. So perhaps it was merely a weak spot on the outside of casing?? Unlike another chrysalis on an ouside plant which had obviously been attacked by something and which we destroyed and removed from the area.

    A check today has shown a second chrysalis appearing at risk of losing its integrity. It is of paler colour than usual and appears to be about to split down the front????

    This afternoon, 24 hours later, I checked the chrysalis and was surprised to see that there was pulsation occurring from within once again. I don’t know if this means that it is still alive ????

    These are extremely large established swan plants and too large for a commercial castle. This morning we had another laying so will have to construct some sort of tent.

    These were still at egg stage so not possible.
