To my surprise, apparently, I grew a milkweed plant, or as it was sold to me "wild cotton". Fortunately, it's been growing for about 6 months, because they're devouring it now.

I'm happy to share my plant with them, but afraid they'll run out of food. Ought I buy a backup one? How long until they stop eating and get all pretty?

Overwhelmed? There's a lot to see here. Try starting at our homepage.
