    That's so cool that they're growing again! I'll buy a few of them when I have to leave the tortoise alone for a couple days. They seem to last a bit longer.

    Those will be super cold hardy too. Mine can survive a few off season snow storms.

    Fun! I'm sure more plants will come to mind later... *Hostas* and African violets do really well (definitely do these two if you aren't already!), other violet/violas, edible ferns like Ostrich fern, shade grass, and I've rotated in tons of other plants and veggies that don't do as well being in...

    Christmas Tree Tubs! Finally!

    Sorry no photos. My sulcata's first chamber was made from several large tubs before I built a wooden chamber. I Just cut the tubs, overlapped them slightly keeping lids intact the best I could, and duct taped the heck out of the whole thing. Used aluminum to cover the tops where any warm air was...

    Using plastic storage bin as closed chamber

    Best thing to do is get shade grass and grow near a window outside of the enclosure. I've done it many times.

    Scratching Tortoises “Butts”

    If my tortoise gave a big physical reaction to something I was doing, I would stop doing it. When my tortoise seems to like what I'm doing like head, neck, and chin scratches she'll hold still and lean into it. She occasionally will even close her eyes and rest while I do it.

    It feels like five years! I miss my forum friends! [emoji169]The kids are huge and doing great. All humans and beasts are good. Have had a few elderly cats peacefully make their way to heaven. Still teaching and doing retail, so free time doesn't exist at all but we're doing really well. Not...

    Recipe and food (tort version)

    I recognize most of my weeds so I know I'm okay. Oddly enough I do get the occasional genuine original deadly night shade! I say cut and dry your grass any way, because most stuff is tort safe, you can pick any bad stuff as you cut, and you can always double check before feeding the dry stuff to...

    Recipe and food (tort version)

    You definitely should! I've been doing it for years. Won't rehydrate to completely normal texture, but my tort likes it.

    Winter feeding way up north.

    Hi Jodie and @Bambam1989 Just about every grass and weed can be frozen for winter food. Even a few surprising veg garden leaves can be frozen. Here is my thread where I first began experimenting...

    Hello, my wonderful Forum friends! All your photos are so pretty! I'm enjoying some nice vacation time and you've been on my mind. Here's a photo of my Mavis taking a break in the strawberry leaves. And another just because my tortoise baby is growing and I'm a proud mamma! I'm working on...
