I heard also coco coir. The problem here is that tortoise care is not very popular. I can only get somethings from petsmart or petco. The websites they say here that sells this stuff dont ship to Puerto Rico. So I have to improvise.
Im getting a new bag of bark today tu mislx it with the soil to see if can reduce the dust.
I will! What types of seeds you put inside?
I used wheatgrass and it grow but died a few weeks later.
Just remember that red foots get shell rot easy. You want the floor to be like a forest floor. Damp but not soaking wet.
I use a mix of soil, moss and mulch. I add water to my soil once or twice a week. I do it in the corners of my enclosure so I'm not just pouring it all over. I keep a top layer of Mulch over the soil/moss mix. I move the moss to the side, pour some water in the corners, then push the moss back in place. This added water to the dirt without making the top layer wet so they don't get shell rot.
Glad to see she is waking up better.
