Butterfly Effect – Sourcing of Materials [Zi Feng & Su Hwee]

The most important and hard to get is the Butterfly. We have been calling oh’farm to have regular updates regarding of the caterpillar kit that is out of stock during our last visit.

We also found other alternative to catch butterfly. From this article “Setting Gardens A-Flutter” by Nature Society they mention about Alexandra Canal Linear Park, Hort Park and Tampines-Changkat Community Garden is place where they plant host and nectar plants to attract butterflies. We also spots some butterfly on our way to canteen 2 in NTU! When there is butterfly, there will be caterpillars!

We also found another blog teaching us how to breed the butterfly! They have detail explanation and instructions but they are lucky to get caterpillars from their neighbours.

As for the box, we are ordering from Dama. They sells cheaper acrylic and able to cut to the size we want. We have ordered and will be getting it on Monday.

We are also thinking that we will be using mesh to block out the back of the box so that is easier for us to manage the butterfly inside.
