Eggs overwinter with caterpillars inside, and they emerge within 10-14  
days after get them into the warmth. They start to feed very fast  
after emerged. Caterpillars are not complicated, and very easy to  
rear. I have reared the first 3 instars in closed containers, a bit  
moistened toilet paper on the ground, with a dry one on top, and on  
top the food plants. Clean regularly. From L4 on watered branches in  
open cages. Moths will emerge after 4 weeks. Pairing was not very  
easy.
