An update on the butterfly eggs

I think it's safe to say they've hatched

Hatchlings

And that was just on one small little section of the vine. The whole plant is covered!

Hope no one was expecting any fresh passion fruit from us...
Spoiled fruit

I'm debating on snipping some of the vine off and bringing it inside to watch them build their pupa. Any ideas on how I could keep the vine alive?

2 thanks for stopping by, i love comments!:

Can you believe how fast they hatched and are growing? I guess when your life is short you make the most of every moment. LD

How very cool! Pretty little caterpillars! I don't know that I would snip the vine...you might not be able to keep it alive long enough for them to pupate...but you could try and if not just put the caterpillars back on the vine outside? It was be really neat to see!
