    A couple of days ago,I noticed a butterfly lay eggs on on two seed pods on the swan plant. Will these hatch? and roughly how long is for a caterpillar emerge?

    HI Jacqui, It’s much longer in Wellington – more like 2 weeks +. Caryl

    Roughly five days, and that shouldn’t be an issue. The seed pods (fruit) of the milkweed will get eaten if there are not enough leaves, as will the stems.
