Peperomia pullicida?

I read the entry of Peperomia in the tortoise table , but it seems vague. Sorry. I am wondering about the plant above which is a weed in my country. I read that the plant has alkaloids in them. Are they still safe as said in the entry? http://www.stuartxchange.org/Pansit.html

Re: Ipomoea aquatica?

I actually do not keep tortoises. I am actually keeping Cuora amboinensis, Mauremys sinensis and Trachemys scripta elegans. From what I know about their diet all of them have a diet that requires 75% vegetation and 25% protein which the protein can be mainly pellets, krill, and fish .

Re: Ipomoea aquatica?

Oh thanks. It is just so unusual many people in my country keeps feeding that plant as a staple. In fact I read a scientists feeding that plant as a staple for the endangered Siebenrockiella leytensis and Cuora amboinensis.

Ruellia insecticide properties?

Hi
I am reading about ruellia and found insecticidal properties in it. Is it still safe to feed it to tortoises? This is the source: http://www.stuartxchange.org/Ruellia and http://icmr.nic.in/ijmr/2014/july/0716.pdf
Thanks
