Hi Sheri,

I have kept a number of California Sisters in 2x3ft mesh enclosures (and
provided them with sugar water, sprigs of both Canyon Oak and Coastal
Live Oak, and strong lighting) but haven't had any success at getting
them to lay eggs. A related species Lorquins Admiral is a snap to raise
(although the overwintering 1/2 grown caterpillar presents a challenge!)
I have talked with several people who have confirmed the difficulty of
getting Sisters to oviposit.  I, too, would love to hear any hints...
