    I am looking to pot some plants that will produce food for my russian tort throughout the winter. It's a great time for me to plant the seeds outside or scavenge around my neighborhood. I want to know if anyone has suggestions for what will live all year inside?

    Also, is organic potting soil safe?

    Hello and Welcome:) yes organic soil is good. Also, you can look on the tortoisetable.org for plant ideas.

    Thanks, I love the tortoise table. I am just wondering if anyone can recommend any that they knows grows great inside the house all year. I am doing a spider plant for sure. I don't know if dandelions do well in a pot, their roots are so long.

    You can plant the dandelions in a vase that is tall, allowing it to grow better.
