While l I was at our big box store here in Deland I was looking at the Milkweed as my plants are looking pretty
sad and I thought instead of sowing seeds I'd just pick one up. I saw a Monarch and asked the clerk
what they did with the caterpillars as I have rescued them from various stores before.
She told me they usually died because the plants are now systemically treated from the grower,
They had found this out the "hard way" as they had tried to set up a butterfly display and someone
brought in caterpillars and they all died eating the plants.
So...warning...if you are purchasing plants make sure they are organically grown...
Better yet, if possible...grow your own.
