    anyone know what kind of plant this is?

    It is a perennial that I received years ago from a friend and grows extremely well in our soil. It grows in small bunches, has green foilage and gets yellow flowers in the spring. Wondering if it is a safe plant for torts.

    CHE vs incondescent bulb

    I was wondering the difference in heat emitted from a CHE vs an incondescent bulb. I have tried a few different sizes of bulbs in my new enclosure to see what I would need to heat it. 100 watts seems like it will work so wondering if the 100 watt CHE would distribute the same, more or less...

    Russian "Box turtles" on CL in Chicago I sent them an email letting them know they are tortoises and that they are VERY different than box turtles in care. I also told them to refer anyone that purchases them to this forum for caresheets and support. Hope they listen!
