Caterpillar forms chrysalis on Poo Poo Platter?

If this happens, allow the caterpillar to form the chrysalis and let it dry for 48 hours. Then..


1. Turn the platter over to access the chrysalis

2. Spray the silk that's attached to the platter with water. Wait a few seconds, then use a toothpick or needle to pull off the chrysalis by the attached silk.

3. Rehang the chrysalis as illustrated here

OR

4. Keep the chrysalis on the cage floor as illustrated here

OR

5. Leave the chrysalis on the platter and place it on top of something so the butterfly will have adequate room to expand and dry its wings after eclosure. 5" of additional height is all you need.
