    good news 🙂 gosh Caryl 19 butterflys is amazing … I have dozens of caterpillars now and they are progressing quite fast … should have another butterfly today. So how long after mating can they lay eggs? I have visions of the 2 I released fluttering round Wellington and not meeting each other lol.

    And I have new butterflies – 19 the past 3 days but the fatality rate is high – 25%.
    It will be weeks before I get eggs again so my plants have time to recover.
