    Hi there, I have a massive swan plant but my last 2 caterpillars disappeared… Does anyone have excess caterpillars that they would like to re-home? Happy to come pick up from anywhere within about 20min drive from northcote. Email me on travelmulligan@gmail.com. Sally

    Gerry I can help if you can find someone to bring them to Blockhouse Bay, and no-one else nearby has offered. Look around your local primary schools too…

    We have a glut of caterpillars and a growing scarcety of swanplant food. Anyone interested? Collect from Orewa (near motorway). Gerry.

    Wasps or ants. Ants are a major problem.

    Hello Sally – I wonder if wasps are taking your caterpillars? If they aare it seems fruitless to restock your plants with new caterpillars if they’re just going to be wasp tucker.

    Awesome sounds good, we have just moved to a new house with a 1.5m plant but no caterpillars. Let me know when they look big enough to move and I’ll arrange to come collect 🙂

    Hi Sally, I have lots but they are a little small right now. Maybe in a week. I am close in browns bay.
