Increase watering if it is very hot & dry when you first get them.

Got this pack at the same time as the milkweed. Had to increase watering to 2x per day due to the heat, and the plants needing to work on their root base. Did loose 2 plants, but the others are doing great!

Monarch Munchables

This was my first time purchasing from this site and I liked the varieties available. My plants arrived in great shape, carefully packaged with good instructions. All the plants are thriving, most are flowering, so far no monarchs have located our space for them, but other moths & butterflies are using it.
