Flutterbox includes an initial Setup Kit followed by the Monthly Live Flutterbox for 8 additional months (March - October). You can cancel the Monthly Live Butterflies at any time or extend it for a longer period if desired. The Setup Kit makes a perfect gift for butterfly enthusiasts!

You can choose a Standard or Deluxe Subscription. We will ship the first Live Flutterbox shipment of caterpillars, chrysalises, and host plants at the appropriate spring date for your zone (March for most locations in Florida). Each Live Flutterbox shipment will have a minimum of two butterfly species (Standard) or four butterfly species (Deluxe) represented. This kit will provide access to species that we don't sell on our website and that are only permitted for shipment within the state of Florida.

Initial shipment includes the Setup Kit only. We will contact you after the order is placed to schedule your monthly shipments on dates that are convenient for you, record any special requests and go over customization options. No additional shipping costs are required for monthly box.
