We are raising painted lady butterflies. Several did not attach to the top of 
their container when they formed chrysalids. They are now (5/3/04) on the 
bottom of the jar. Should we try to attach them to something or leave them 
be?  We will move the ones that did attach to paper at the top of the 
container to a larger enclosure so they'll have room to hatch out and fly. 
Shall we lay the unatttached chrysalids in the new cage or try to tape them 
to something off the ground so they can get out of their chrysalids easier? 
Several other classes have the same problem. Thank you. 4th graders in
