If you order a large order we will include free plants as a way to say thanks. Please note that in shipment these plants can be in a dark cold or hot box for 2-3 days. As soon as you receive them open and water them. They will take a few days to readjust to a "normal" life. These plants are about 3-5 inchs tall and will take up to two-three months to be full grown for Monarchs to feed on.
These cuttings are what we use for our butterfly farm. They grow fast and are very easy to take care of.
