A mix of dried plants and flowers I use to top or add to meals for my torts: wakame seaweed, hibiscus flowers, rosebuds, moringa leaves, nettle leaves, and raspberry leaves.

Sometimes I soak a bit and mix it in with whatever I'm serving them, but more often than not I'll just shake a pinch over their food.

Nice, I've been doing the same thing this winter except my mix is dried roses, hibiscus, and dandelion.

I shake on a bit each day, and it lasts for a good long while...

I've added a few dried plants to the mix... it now contains:
  • hibiscus
  • wakame
  • rosebuds
  • moringa
  • nettle
  • raspberry
  • calendula flowers
  • echinacea
I mix equal amounts of each in a huge mason jar, shake it up to mix it, and add a bit to every meal my torts get.
