Hi, I am hoping someone can help me. I have a chrysalis that formed yesterday afternoon. During the night it fell off of the top of the lid and landed on the milkweed plant in the container. I am not sure if it is alive. It is still green. I don't know what to do. I cannot figure a way to reattach it to something so that it is hanging. Please help me if you know what to do. I don't want to kill it.

Hi Heather - welcome!
Your chrysalis is probably just fine...the short answer is that it does not have to be hanging to develop properly. Please read the following thread for complete info and if you have more questions let me know.
