Big Cube Butterfly Cage

Highly recommend!

Very pleased

Only problem is trying to refold the mesh containers. They are really good.

Gift for a friend

My order was shipped to a science teacher friend. She is using all of the items purchased. Fat cat floral cubes, magnet and big baby cube.

Arrived Just in Time!

I ordered the Big Butterfly Cube in preparation for next spring. However, the day my package arrived we started getting rain that lasted around 2 weeks! I had new butterflies maturing daily so it was perfect that I had the Big Cube ready to set up! I gathered a few wild flowers and branches to pit in the cube for the butterflies and they were very comfortable while waiting for the sun to make an appearance! This morning I carried the cube outside and opened up the drawbridge opening so every butterfly could begin their migration adventure from Minnesota to Mexico!!!


This is my first attempt at raising Monarch butterflies and the cage worked perfectly. It was so easy to unfold and set up. I only had 3 caterpillars that I collected from my milkweed which I brought inside and raised in the mesh cage. Of course I bought the larger cage in hopes of having a lot of Monarchs. Oh well, maybe next year. Once they emerged the butterflies had plenty of space to exercise their wings in and the viewing was great. The cage was easy to transport outside where we set them free. Also, thanks for the email updates. Every time I received an informational email, it was exactly what was happening with my caterpillars/butterflies. How cool was that?

Nursery cage

First time user and I have released 33 butterflies over the last ten days. Works like a charm!

FAT CAT floral tubes and tube rack Bundle

These definitely were worth the money and they are study enough to hold my biggest leaves. Just wish I would have bought sooner instead of improvising along the way this summer

Big Cube Butterfly Cage

Highly recommend!

Floral tubes

Worked great. The tubes keep the water for a long time and the milkweed leaves stay healthier.

first time using twin peg racks

They work great! I don't have to replace the milkweed leaves or run outside to get more. However, they work better with smaller caterpillars, as the large ones bend down the leaves and it's easier then to go back to feeding them from the cage floor.
