    Bought 2 hardy hibiscus syriacus plants - how long to wait before feeding? + red hibiscus in canada?

    OK, if the west coast winter is that mild, it might be ok to be planted in the yard. I'm in Montreal. :(

    Bought 2 hardy hibiscus syriacus plants - how long to wait before feeding? + red hibiscus in canada?

    I tried growing hibiscus indoor before, which is the only way to pass winter in Canada... Unless you have a green house to keep humidity high and sunlight strong, it mighy not be able to last for more than two or three years. :( Insects, root rot... You may need a place to be able to hose it...

    I forgot to mention, my Clyde is hibernating in his fridge since December.

    Can anyone tell me what’s going on and if he’s gonna die

    I think he needs to sleep/hibernate. My Clyde does that too. When he is active for 4, 5 months, he gradually would get sleepy, especially in winter months. It doesn't matter how warm or how long I keep the lights on, he just knows. He has his own internal clock.

    Coronavirus

    Well said, ManAlive85 and Kipley. The death rate of Covid-19 is 10 times as the common flu and transmit extremely fast compared to SARS. It not only damages the lungs but also triggers immune system reactions to attack other organs. There are many young people who died in China caused by this...

    In love with a potted plant?

    I think each tort has its own thing. This one just loves that pot. They are just all so stubborn in their own way...

    Is my tortoise ok

    I think it's just stain from the coconut coil. I put a light color marble tile on top of the coconut coil as a serving plate to my Clyde, and the bottom side of the plate turned dark brown overtime and it's impossible to wash off.

    Leaving My Tort Alone.

    I think a few days by himself is not a big deal at all. He will be fine. :)

    Need some help to find Pyramiding debate posts

    If it can be done, that would be amazing. Because this breeder is selling the babies at $2,500 each. I understand the rarity in Canada, but the price is still too steep for a baby that is already pyramiding. From what I know, Canada doesn't allow tortoise to be imported for commercial use, only...

    Need some help to find Pyramiding debate posts

    Thanks Tom for replying! Because of the weather in Canada, I don't think keeping any tortoise bigger than a Hermann is feasible. Egyptians could have been perfect, but they're nowhere to be found in Canada except from this breeder. I would've loved loved loved to buy an Egyptian baby from you...

    Need some help to find Pyramiding debate posts

    Hi, I'm trying to help a Canadian tortoise breeder who is willing to learn more newer information about raising baby tortoises. He is the only breeder in Canada that breeds Egyptian tortoise, but sadly, all his little babies are pyramiding. He raises them in open top enclosures with humid hides...

    Sudden death of 3 month old Indian Star

    Sorry for your loss. I think unless you live in a really humid climate and the humidity of your whole room is at 90%, it is impossible to maintain the humidity of your entire tortoise enclosure to be above 90% with an open front. You mentioned that the sensor for humity is in the tunnel, which...
