Yes, I donated to Monarch Watch already!!!!
That's how I found you, Mona.
Today, the caterpillars that were laying on their sides on the bottom of the container are now on the new leaves and have eaten. Development has definitely slowed as for their size, they should have eaten at least have a leaf and they are just nibbling.
I have more adult monarchs nectaring outside so the butterflies don't seemed to be harmed by the toxin.
I don't have time to check out your links yet but will be back to do so.
You're awesome. Thanks for your help. It's good not to feel alone during this as the general public don't seem to get it and think it's kinda weird.
