Re: Couple of quick questions

Good morning. I will take some more pictures for sizing but it looks almost identical to the fescue! That would be great.

Couple of quick questions

Hey everyone. I have 2 questions that are hopefully easy. The first one is can my girls eat all parts of the spiderwort plants? I've read the entry fully but no mention of it. Second I have a section in my yard with some very tall and very wide bladed grass and I was wondering if I could feed it to ...

Re: Smilax

Just a quick update regarding smilax. I gave both of my girls a few of the smaller leaves and they thoroughly enjoyed them with no I'll effects. I give them both a few a week now as part of a varied diet.

Nina yes ma'am I am very familiar with it as I have some at my home. I'm guessing you meant for Joe or lin? I had mentioned the plant as it looked familiar. :D

Nina this forum is always refreshing and a wealth of knowledge. I had no idea that the ragweed was such an issue over there. Thank you so much for the information. I'm looking forward to seeing it flower.

Re: Grassland Weed ID please

A little late I know but if it hasn't been identified yet. It definitely has the ragweed look to it but it also bears resemblance to common tansy.

Re: Weed ID please

Is there a possibility of it being Melissa officinalis? Does the plant have a square or round stem?

Thank you Lin. I am a wild edible fanatic for me. I never thought I could apply that knowledge to feeding my tortoises. It helps me learn a lot of new plants also :)

Sorry for such a delayed response work has been incredibly busy. My family lives in street, yeovil, just outside London, and Wales. I'm fortunate and have cutleaf primrose growing all over my yard and I always spread seeds around so they will keep producing. My girls tried hibiscus for the first tim...

Re: Smilax

I would love to take the pictures for you! I took 2 small pieces of cactus pad and removed what I could see and feel but I know that I missed a few. Neither one was concerned about them though they loved it.

Re: Smilax

Thank you so much for your response. I was actually wanting to feed them the top 6-8 inches and stay completely away from the leaves and definitely not the roots. The top part for comparison is similar to asparagus. It is delicious to eat. I'm still relatively new to tortoises at least keeping them....

Smilax

Hello everyone. At home it's that time of the year when the smilax comes out. While I absolutely love eating them I can't seem to find either a yes or no indication of whether my 2 girls (marginated and sulcata ) can eat them. Any thoughts?

Opuntia Prickly Pear

Hello everyone. At my home in Florida I have several prickly pear cactus plants. I would like to introduce it as part of my marginated and my sulcatas diet. I know the pads should be a little smaller than the palm of my hand and that the spikes should be removed. My question is do I need to remove t...

Substrate for my Marginated?

I'm hoping that this question hasn't been asked a million time but I need some help. I've heard several different answers on what to use. I am leaning towards a mixture of topsoil and play sand. My girl absolutely hates the coconut and the cypress mulch. I'd be grateful for any suggestions. Thank yo...
