In Topic: Weed Identity

I bought my dried flowers and some seeds from shelled warriors, are they okay? I have only offered the dried food once and to no avail so I have been finding and researching the plentiful amount of weeds in my garden, which seems to be going quite well.
I'm a bit nervous at this point about feeding garden weed s, though I feel I do a lot of research, if I did make a mistake and feed a bad weed would it be deadly? Or does it just depend on the weed?
Thanks for the advice

Thank you so much. I have been looking at the tortoise table but as none have flowered it has been making it quite difficult for such a beginner but I'm hoping once I've got the basics it will all come together.
I'm over the moon I have so many tortoise friendly weeds.
I have offered dried flowers and weeds but she hasn't been interested but the plants seem to be going down a treat.

Thank you, i think I've ordered the right stuff  :)


No, i haven't received a care plan but I haven't exactly told her I am a newbie at this, she has asked me what uv/heat I have got but we have only messaged a few times. 

She hasn't advised on housing but I am quit confident I have the right set up. 


I have a 90x60x14.5cm tortoise table with large house but will get a bigger size once the tortoise is a bit bigger. 

I have the Arcadia D3 160w bulb and 200mm Arcadia holder ( I feel I may have gone overboard with the 160w but I will either have to raise it higher than planned or buy a 100w one). 

Top soil for substrate, which i believe watering with a jug around the edges of the vivarium produces more humidity? but how often? 

I have ordered tortoise weed seeds, some dried food (flowers & weeds) just in case, the nekton, calcium powder and cuttlefish, but I doubt i will give him the cuttlefish now.

What is the difference between limestone flour and calcium powder?

I have also took pictures of the weeds in my garden which I hope someone on here can id some for next week in preparation but i won't bore you with them  :)


The tortoise table isn't completely set up yet as I didn't want to be too eager but I will post pictures over the weekend just so I know it will be okay. 

Honestly if anything sounds at all wrong with my set up i'll happily change it, i'd rather get it right now whilst the new addition isn't here.

Thanks Karen I'll add limestone flour to my shopping list, you can never have enough supplements
I'd rather be over prepared than under prepared.
