Lifecycle of a Cabbage Butterfly
Quantity in Basket:
Both the Large and Small Whites have similar life cycles. Eggs are laid on cruciferous plants (plants with four-petalled blooms) in groups of about forty and after about a week, the caterpillars emerge. They are voracious eaters and can reduce their food plants to mere stalks. The Small White prefers to eat the inner leaves while the Large White tends to remain on the outer leaves.
