Thanks for the pics, it is really cool to see what a “native” cherry looks like! Most of what we see are captive bred in the states or those recent imported farm bred cherries. She is a beautiful girl!
Lose the pineapple. Generally it takes them up to two weeks to settle in. I don’t know much about inside set ups, but the temps, is that the ambient temp or the temp of the substrate? How little is your tortoise? When they are recently hatched, they need very specific conditions.

You better post pics or we will break up! It has been too long. I have always advised that keepers reach out to other keepers in their neck of the woods. The USA has so many different climates and temps (much less the rest of the world)...I’m in south Florida so what works for me won‘t work for...
