An easy species, suitable for newcomers. Keep warm (minimum room temperature), in spacious well ventilated plastic containers when young. Older caterpillars can continue in large, plastic containers or in a netted cage The caterpillars tolerate company very well. Keep dry (avoid condensation and wet leaves, do not spray). Relatively slow growing. Ready to pupate within 7 to 8 weeks. When ready to pupate move to individual plastic containers lined with paper towels until they have pupated. Pupae usually overwinter (in an unheated frost free room not in the fridge), occasionally some moths emerge in autumn when temperatures remain too high.
