So I'm in the process of building a large outdoor enclosure for my Russian (10x3x2) and I was wondering what plants to plant. I've been on the plant database but the pictures aren't very helpful for me; I need names. I have sedge grass and am planning on getting aloe vera, spider plant and Christmas cactus. I have also ordered the seed mix from TortoiseSupply.com but there will be a separate area for that to grow with a removable divider when it has grown. I am out of ideas for other plants and was hoping I could get some help. Thanks :)

Clover, Chia, dandelion, chicory, plantain (not the banana like fruit the weed plantago), and turnip greens are all growing in my Russian pens. Aloe, various lettuce, and spider plants are also options.

I use the list of plants on www.russiantortoise.net

I have fescue (Festuca pratensis ), wild strawberry, aloe, Russian seed mix from Carolina's Pet Supply, poppy's and sweet potato greens (Ipomoea batatas). I can tell you his favorite by far is the sweet potato greens.

I also got my seeds from Carolina pet supply, but I don't like grass for my Russians, they don't eat it so I bought all the other seeds in their mix individually and mixed together on my own.
