    Hi there,
    I own 2 beautiful sulcata babies and living in india , we don’t have many types of leafy veggies here but i did manage to find endive lettuce, romaine, red leaf lettuce, kale and bok choy..

    I do feed them bermuda and wheatgrass daily but which veggies of all mentioned above can be a safe daily feed?

    Thanks :)

    All of those are safe to feed in moderation, but there are much better foods all around you for free. Try to ID your local weeds and find safe sources for them. Here is a whole list of things to find or grow, and this is just a basic starter list, There are many many more things you can grow.

    Out of your list, favor the endive most of the time and use the others for variety. Keep using lots of that grass daily too.
