in the butterfly wing with someone watering the plants

The butterflies are adjusting well to the plant changes made earlier this month in the Christina Reiman Butterfly Wing. The butterflies seem to enjoy and spend a lot of time at the nectar plants. Many of the plants are completely new to the Butterfly Wing. It will be interesting over time to observe the different butterfly species nectaring and discover which flowering plants are their favorites. With the removal of some of the more substantial plantings the butterflies now mostly roost in the center of the Butterfly Wing on the Fishtail Palm. While we still have a few more weeks of winter, why not visit the tropical conditions in the Butterfly Wing to watch the butterflies interacting with the new plantings?
