Newbie has question about BST chrysalis

15 years ago


I have 3 BST--one just formed a chrysalis and the other two are very near to forming one. Two of them are on sticks. I am concerned that one is at the bottom of one stick. The stick is in a small pot in the Pavilion, and he is one inch from the bottom of the stick. Is this going to be a problem when he emerges? Do I try to move the stick at some point?

I also have over 20 BST that hatched from eggs a few days ago. So far they are all still alive. Of the first 7 eggs I brought inside, only 3 made it and are now forming chrysalis. I am now feeding them all a variety of dill, parsley, and fennel and that seems to have made the difference.
