    Plants that grow in Las Vegas Desert Conditions

    Succulents is a good idea but where would you recommend buying and aloe plant or something like that where you know it's safe for him to eat(no pesticides or fertilizer)? I don't really have room for like a large tree or bush as I am looking for a plant that's more grounded like dandelions or...

    Plants that grow in Las Vegas Desert Conditions

    Dandelions grow in many yards here so dandelions would work.

    Plants that grow in Las Vegas Desert Conditions

    I have a Russian tortoise and I am looking for species of plants that will grow in the desert conditions of Las Vegas to grow next planting season. I am currently growing tortoise supply's testudo seed mix which is doing pretty well but I had to move it to the shade because the plants were...

    Does my Russian tortoise need a beak trim?

    The vet says that his shell is only slightly smaller and doesn't affect his wellbeing at all so I am not worried. I don't know his exact length but I know he weighs 390 grams. I don't believe he is overweight as he doesn't have the fat near his shoulders and is not coming out of his shell like...

    Does my Russian tortoise need a beak trim?

    When I took him to the vet for his previous trim the vet said that he is a bit small for his shell which could be caused by many factors including genetic deformity and said that his growing beak might be caused by this. I don't know if this is correct though as I know that this forum says that...

    Does my Russian tortoise need a beak trim?

    My Russian tortoise got a beak trim about 5 months ago. Does he need another one or can I wait a little longer? His beak length currently is not impacting eating, pulling his head back in, or anything else. And for future how can I tell when his beak needs to be trimmed? He was in the bath...

    Something else to plant that my Russian Tortoise can eat often

    Thank you for all the great options. I think I will look into planting mallow and desert primrose as I only have space for more grounded plants.vs big bushes and trees. I will look into ordering cactus pads later as they are out of stock right now(I think they are out of season).

    Something else to plant that my Russian Tortoise can eat often

    Ok thank you. I think I will change the style of feeding I am doing because I am just mixing the testudo mix with spring mix every day and I will switch to feeding him radish one day clover the next one type of lettuce in the spring mix etc.

    Something else to plant that my Russian Tortoise can eat often

    Can they at least be fed pretty often like 5 times a week mixed with other plants and not have consequences to feeding often like spinach and chard does?

    Something else to plant that my Russian Tortoise can eat often

    I am currently growing tortoise supply's testudo mix in a planter in my yard for about a month or two now and it is mostly producing radishes and clovers which I know cannot be fed very often to a Russian tortoise. The other plants that are growing in there haven't got as big as the radish and...

    Plant identification in tortoise supply's seed mix

    Yeah it's been growing for about a month and it's mostly still the raddish and clover. I feed him spring mix along with it with cucumbers and bell peppers every week or every other week with Grassland zoomed food like 2-3 times a week. I soak him once a week for around 20 min and I make sure...

    Plant identification in tortoise supply's seed mix

    This plant has been most of the yield I get from my garden where I planted tortoise supply's testudo seed mix. What is it and is it ok to feed everyday as since it is most of my garden I feed it to my Russian tortoise basically every day? Also, is it ok to feed him clover every day to him?

    Remove Mushrooms?

    I wasn't going to feed them to him. I was only asking if they benefit or hurt the plants but I will remove them anyways. Thank you
