Question, I have a zoo med uvb/heat lamp 125w mercury bulb, (hung 12" above my Russian tortoise's shell, in a deep fixture). How much ground is that covering with uvb in his encosure? Anywhere the light casts a shadow? Just the area below in the basking area? I use uvb testing cards to make sure the bulbs are putting out uvb, but I'm not sure how far it's reach is.
Hola all! I have had my testudo tortoise for about 3 months now. Just recently she has been digging under the substrate, which is small pieces of redwood and Timothy Hay...she sleeps all day and seems to eat very little. What can I do to get her to be more active and to make sure she is eating enough? I was thinking of taking her outside on the weekends to get some sun...she has a UV light and heat lamps...HELP?

I would change the substrate to something like coco choir and cypress mulch or fine grade orchid bark. What is the diet?
I recently got a greek tortoise for 100 dollars hes perfectly healthy until now when i asked the woman how old is he she said he was 2 months to 5 years old but i dont trust that he is 12 cm and i was wondering if someone could give me atleast an estimate of his age

That is a huge range of possible ages. At 12 cm. that tortoise is at least a few years old and nowhere near 2 months. If you posted photos of it, it would be easier to tell you hold it it looks.
Serious rain storm last night, as soon as I could see I ran out and brought the 2 biggest plants inside. Broke one big branch off one...damn it! These are the best ever and biggest plants I've grown...

Bummer, if it happens during flower. If still in Veg though take that branch and stick it down in some dirt immediately next time and you've created a clone.
