    I am planning on trying to grow some wild flowers in an aero garden for Apollo. Just wondering if there is anything in the aero garden liquid plant food that could be harmful, and if I should / should not use it? Photos attached. Thanks!

    As long as the tortoise can't directly reach the fertilizer product, it should be fine.

    That's great news - thank you! It will just be used to grow the wildflowers, and I'll be feeding the wildflowers to him.

    Just make sure all of the "wild flowers" are safe species. Seed sellers don't usually intend for their mixes to be fed to animals, unless they state this on the packaging.

    Yep I went through all the wild flower options on the aero garden custom packs and only chose ones that are "safe" according to Tortoise Table :)
