Just had a walk and found the plant again...it's now 5ft tall and still hasn't flowered but def a Hawk! The tortoises won't eat the leaves but my Guinea pig does!

I've had this come up, I promise I've searched the database but can't see it, any ideas?

Re: Tiny's new outside enclosure

Re: Tiny's new outside enclosure

I made sure she has air holes all the way round, just in case the lid closes etc and I'm not around! Don't want to bake her...also I'm putting the wire lid on during the day so nothing can whisk her away!

Tiny's new enclosure

Hi guys, hope your all good.... As my little angel has more than doubled since Nov 16.... I thought it was time to move her into a more appropriate home! She seems to like it and hasn't had a nap since I put her in there...4 hours ago!

Re: Piramiding

I totally agree Nina!! I went away and left my mum tortoise sitting... I think I rang 8-9 times a day to check on them, I drove my mum mad :lol: I was SO worried and happy to say they were both fine.
