Need White Sapote Leaves for Giant Swallowtails - Any to spare?
We have some Giant Swallowtail caterpillars going to hatch but have nothing but rue to raise them on, which they don't seem to do too well on. White Sapote is supposed to be one of the best foods, but we have no way to get a plant with enough leaves. So I thought of asking here if anyone has a few dozen leaves that have not been sprayed with anything to spare (if they will last in shipment for few days?), or a few small twigs with leaves. I'd be happy to reimburse for costs and shipment (whatever can be stuck inside a Priority Mail box or what not).
I'm not sure of the nature of these leaves and if they will hold up without wilting for a few days, but they seem to be the type that would.
Any other ideas, suggestions or advice is welcome!
