    Hi
    I live in Taupo and each year raise as many butterflies as I can grow food for.
    About 170 this year
    I need to grow the plants in plastic houses to keep plants alive in the winter and also protect the caterpillars from wasps.
    Yesterday I had a butterfly hatch which was surprising.
    About 10 weeks ago I has some late caterpillars which matured to chrysalis.
    However as usually happens as it gets colder they either die or the butterflies hatch deformed.]
    The one that hatched had hung all those weeks.
    Has anyone had this happen before?
    A first for me
