When they have deformed wing , it mean u have not constantly feed them. They have undergone a period of fasting too long to miss their growing time.

Thanks for the explanation.

Hohohohoho, the first 2 butterflies to emerge from their pupae. Have since released those 2 already. Colour is brilliant, unfortunately, it's night time, and the photograph is more difficult to take. 7 more to go.

3 more butterfly emerged this morning. Placed them on orchid plants to sun themselves, before they are strong enough to fly off.

You cannot feed a butterfky in a container . They will get weaker and weaker eventally die.

I think so, because their lifespan are not very long.
