Chrysalis only

$19.00 inc. GST

Single chrysalises to refill your chrysalis kit and watch the metamorphosis again!

You can place an order ahead of time for available dates at ANY time using the calendar system below.

Orchard Chrysalises hang upright and come in green or brown depending on the colour of their surroundings at the time of pupation,










** Orchard Swallowtail Chrysalis – 20th June onwards.  These are ONLY for locations that have daily temperatures above 22 degrees  and will need a small pop up enclosure due to their delicate wings – Orchard Swallowtails can go into diapause at this time of the year so may take 4-8 weeks to emerge**

**  Monarchs will be available again for all states in Spring – Date to be advised .  For the colder states this is usually early October**



We recommend having a cube from the Chrysalis Kit or our Pop-up enclosure to house your chrysalises.

 When will it be delivered?

We do our best to send your items out by your selected delivery date. However, nature can sometimes impact on their life cycle so changes may need to be made. 

To minimise transit time, we send kits via Express Post*.  We will send all orders at the beginning of the week to hopefully ensure delivery in the chosen week. This may mean your order may arrive on, before or after your chosen date.  Email updates will be sent directly to you from Australia Post.

*Australia Post notification: Next-business-day guarantee currently suspended – Express Post remains our fastest postal service.

Will I always get the same chrysalis?

We will try to send you the Monarch chrysalises (see images above)  when we can but, at different times of the year there are limitations in availability and we will send the species available at the time. Butterfly chrysalises come in very different textures shapes and colours: green or brown, smooth or slightly spiked and some can even wriggle!  Please let us know if you only want a Monarch but this could mean a longer wait.

What if things go wrong?

A birth of a butterfly, like a birth of any living creature is a rather delicate process.  We wish we could say that there is 100% guarantee of success but that would be unrealistic. What we can guarantee, however, is that we will be there to answer your questions, support you and in a rare case of the birth going wrong to replace your chrysalis.
