Baby Tigers spotted !
This morning I noticed the leaves of my Blood Flower (Asclepias curassavica ) show signs of being eaten by caterpillar. On closer examination, I found Plain Tiger caterpillars on the plant.
I checked the plants and counted at least 10 caterpillars ! I decided to collect all the caterpillars and put them in container so that I can ration the leaves and ensure there is sufficient leaves for all of them.
