Monarch Butterfly Project

Late summer 2021: I made a first attempt to raise Monarch butterflies. I bought lantana plants to provide nectar for the butterflies and milkweed plants as food for the caterpillars. Since earlier caterpillars kept disappearing from my butterfly plants outside, I brought them to a habitat inside my screened porch to give them a better chance at survival. See what happened to 6 Monarchs in the videos here:
