Additional Information

Exclusive | Attract Butterflies with Our Puddling Stone

  • Butterfly puddler provides vital minerals
  • A beautiful accent for a flower garden
  • Hand-painted ceramic

Butterflies gather around mud puddles to get the minerals they need. This hand-painted ceramic Butterfly Puddling Stone is a beautiful way to create your own puddling station. Place it in a sunny location among your flowers where butterflies can sunbathe. Fill the well with sand, mix in a pinch of salt, and pour water over it until a puddle forms on the surface. As the water evaporates, it leaves behind valuable salts and minerals that butterflies need. Once butterflies know where to find these minerals, they'll return regularly. Placing pieces of overripe fruit on the stone is another way to attract butterflies.

      Comments about : Butterfly Puddling Stone:

      Maybe I didn't choose the right location, but placed on the ground in my garden, this puddling stone quickly attracted dozens of doodle bugs. I removed them often, and replenished the sand and salt mixture, but I don't know if any butterflies ever found the stone

      Useless

      By Greg

      from Swanton, VT

      Verified Reviewer

      Comments about : Butterfly Puddling Stone:

      The puddle is way too small.
      On a hot, sunny day the puddle dries out in a very short time.
      Heavy rains will wash all sand from from the puddle.
      The title says it all, the puddling stone is useless

      Comments about : Butterfly Puddling Stone:

      I had expected the puddle stone to be a bit larger, but nonetheless, it makes a very pretty addition to the area by my bird bath. A unique accent whether butterflies use it or not. I like it!

      Great Gift

      By Tina

      from PA

      Verified Buyer

      Comments about : Butterfly Puddling Stone:

      I bought this for an avid gardener as a gift. The recipient loved. It is well made, durable. It is used outside with sand, salt, and a little water. The inside blue well for the sand, salt, and water is beautiful. It is worth the reasonable price and makes a lovely gift for oneself, family, and/or friends. I intend to keep this on my list of possible gifts for friends.

          It is pretty. So far I have not seen any butterflies at it, even though I have seen many butterflies in flowers near to where this is located. I am gad it was a good price (less than 2 other companies).

          cute...but no takers

          Comments about : Butterfly Puddling Stone:

          the directions say to keep in sun...the little 'pool' dries out faster then I can keep it moist...thus not meeting the needs of the butterflies.

          Nice addition to the garden. Have it placed next to many butterfly perennials, but I'm not sure it really does much. Have seen many butterflies on the flowers but none on the stone.

          As of today, no I wouldn't buy this product again.

          Comments about : Butterfly Puddling Stone:

          My one star rating may not be at all fair considering that butterflies have been very scarce in and around our Ohio garden this year. The puddle stone hasn't had one single visitor but looks very nice in the patio garden area. Hopefully activity will increase as we go further into July.

          I love the idea of having everything butterflies need in one place. I just planted my butterfly garden this summer and was thrilled to find this puddling stone to go in it. Love it!
