Hey! So I just bought this organic potting soil and was wondering if it is safe? It looks like it has peralites in it but it says that everything in it comes from the earth. What do you think?

I wouldn't use any bought-in-a-bag soil in a tortoise enclosure. There is no way to know what composted material it is made of, and it could be something toxic. That's in addition to the perlite and other additives.
