Sometime they grow so fast.. Haizz Blood flower botak already . Crown eat kena .

not only you, citrus plants get stripped of leaves by lime swallowtail if you did not really examine the leaves carefully. Certain point of time, they are amazing to observe, but sometimes a pest.lol :ninja:/>

Digitalgate,
Blood flower cannot sustain a PT population. They don't regenerate well and require constant replanting.
If you plan to have multiple generations PT, plant Crown Flower. Start with a big plant and they can grow into a tree.

DG is right. The caterpillars rather die than eat any other outcomes in. If you don't have milkweed/bloodflower, don't try increasing these individuals.
