disappearing monarch cats?
Hello all. My garden includes lots of native perennials, including a small butterfly weed. I was very excited this year to see so many monarch butterflies around it, and thrilled to find eggs, then baby cats, and then full-grown cats. However, I can't find a chrysalis anywhere near the butterfly weed, and I'm wondering where they all might have gone to pupate. I did take one indoors (along with a black swallowtail cat from the parsley) to raise indoors in a 20 gallon tank. I'm really curious though as to where the cats all went to pupate, as I would much prefer to watch them in their native setting. I've looked on all the plants and shrubs in my small front garden with no luck.
