The chrysalis stage is a quiet but exciting time during your butterfly raising experience. Inside the chrysalis the caterpillar is turning to liquid and rearranging itself to form a butterfly. During this delicate time, be sure not to handle the cup and disturb the chrysalides.
You'll first notice your caterpillars hanging in a "J" shape when they are getting ready to form the chrysalis. Once the chrysalides have formed, give them three days to harden before carefully moving them to the chrysalis log in the butterfly habitat.
When you are moving the chrysalides, they might wiggle a little bit. Don't worry, this is a natural response to threats and your chrysalides are totally fine. Once the chrysalides are in the butterfly habitat, it's a waiting game! The chrysalis stage takes around 7-10 days.
