Here is one chrysalis and one in the "J" position.

Hi docmom. Congrats! I am currently raising two for the first time ever. My older one will be going into pupae form soon and the other just got his stripes.

It's so much fun. Very rewarding part of gardening. :o)

Congrats on a job well done-and while moving!! Are those your last two?
I've got a few on the verge of 5th instar, along with a couple BST cats 3rd instar.

Heavens no, those aren't my last two. I have about 30 more ranging from just hatched all the way to 5 th instar. I'm driving to Madison tomorrow to pick up my apartment keys, and turning around Saturday to drive back to Michigan to spend my last weekend with my kids. Are you looking for something to keep you busy? I could bring some to you to finish raising for me. Let me know.
