Live Caterpillars Mailed Directly to You
The Butterfly Garden comes with a coupon to send away for five caterpillars. The caterpillars are hatched from eggs in a butterfly nursery and mailed to your home in a special clear container, complete with caterpillar food.

Live Caterpillars

Live caterpillars and food

Keeping the caterpillars out of direct sunlight, children can watch them eat, grow, and after seven to ten days, form their chrysalides and begin their transformation into butterflies. The transformation from caterpillar to butterfly normally takes two to three weeks: seven to ten days in caterpillar stage, and seven to ten days in chrysalis stage. Insect Lore guarantees that at least three of the five caterpillars you receive will grow into adult butterflies.

Observe the Metamorphosis Up Close
The Butterfly Garden comes with a pop-up butterfly observation habitat, which is a cylindrical mesh container measuring 12 inches tall. Once the caterpillars become chrysalides, they can be transferred to the habitat, where they will complete their transformation into adult Painted Lady butterflies. Children will be excited to keep a close eye on the changing chrysalides and watch this seemingly magical metamorphosis.

Your Very Own Butterflies
Once the butterflies emerge, children can have lots of fun feeding them and watching them eat. The kit comes with a dropper for squeezing sugar water into the habitat for the butterflies to drink. It is recommended that flowers be placed in the habitat for the butterflies to rest on while they enjoy their meals. Kids will delight in observing the butterflies unfurl their proboscises to suck up the sugar water.

Enjoy your butterflies for a few days and then experience the excitement of letting them go to continue their amazing life cycle. Insect Lore recommends that butterflies be released within a week of their emergence, when temperatures are above 55 degrees Fahrenheit. To ensure the safety of your live specimens, delivery may be delayed if temperatures are extreme in your area.

Additional mail-in certificates are available for order, so once you've released your butterflies, you can reuse the Butterfly Garden and experience the magic of metamorphosis again and again.

EZ BioResearch Pre-poured Agar Plates and Swabs, 10 plates & 10 swabs

EZ BioResearch Pre-poured Agar Plates and Swabs, 10 plates & 10 swabs Lowest new price: $12.95
Brand: EZ BioResearch LLC
Model: PD-100-LB

1) 10 Pre-poured sterile LB-agar plates (100 x 15 mm Petri Dish)
2) 10 6-inch sterile swabs (in 5 pouches)

Storage condition and shelf life:
Store agar plates at 4 oC refrigerator with a shelf-life of up to 30 days.

Instructions:
Lysogeny broth (LB), a nutritionally rich medium, is primarily used for the growth of bacteria. LB media formulations have been an industry standard for the cultivation of Escherichia coli as far back as the 1950s. These media have been widely used in molecular microbiology applications for the preparation of plasmid DNA and recombinant proteins. It continues to be one of the most common media used for maintaining and cultivating laboratory recombinant strains of Escherichia coli (Wikipedia). LB-agar plates are made from nutrient medium (LB) and agar powder under sterile conditions. It contains a brown-yellowish nutrient agar layer in the bottom half of a Petri dish. This yellowish layer is used to culture bacteria and other micro-organisms. Sterile swabs are used to pick up bacteria and seed them on to the agar plates.
After the plates are swabbed, the plates should be incubated at 37 oC for optimal bacterial growth. Normally 24 hr incubation should be enough to see the appearance of bacterial colonies. Incubation at 25 oC or room temperature should take considerable longer time (2 to 3 days) to see bacterial colonies.

Notice:
1) The plates should be placed in an upside down position to prevent water condensation.
2) The plates should be placed in a closed box (NOT sealed) to minimize the chance of contamination.
3) The experiment should be terminated after 5 days. Prolonged incubation is strongly discouraged due to possible contamination in a non-sterile environment.
For more info, search internet using key words such as agar plates.

Features:

  • 10 Prepoured sterile LB-agar plates are ready to use. 10 sterile 6-inch long swabs (in 5 pouches).
  • Laboratory formulation of nutrient medium LB for guaranteed bacterial, yeast, and mold growth.
  • No messy microwave or heating is needed. Safe for children of all ages.
  • Detailed Instruction is included. Great for school science fair projects.
  • Free upgrade to Expediated Shipping Service.
