It is your responsibility to ensure you have:

  • Knowledge of raising monarchs (and thus a good understanding of metamorphosis)
  • An adequate supply of nettles – or ability to acquire more.

Note: Preference will be given to those who have a caterpillar castle (or similar) and have undertaken the Create Butterfly Habitat course on-line. For those who have not raised admirals before, we suggest that you start out with yellow admirals.
