Oh my! My Monarchs are thriving! I got a call
from the nursery I like best that they got come in today. I went up
there right away before they were all gone. I was able to get 10 plants.
I had just gotten 8 from them last Wednesday and they were completely
chewed up when I got home and started transferring them to the new
plants. I used 8 plants in the transfer. So many were smaller and there
were some really big ones that should be about ready for the next stage.
I had 2 pots where the caterpillar had made it's chrysalis on the side
of the pot, so I had to just put them aside on top of the hutch and hope
they'll be okay there. I don't have room to leave them in the hutch
right now. After I transferred all of them, I still found a bunch more
on my potted plants outside the hutch and had to move them. One other
nursery is supposed to get some in tomorrow and the other one should
have some on Wednesday. I'm going to check with both of them because the
smaller ones are going to need more food in just a few days as they
grow.
