    I recd my seeds for my outdoor enclosure but no planting instructions. Don’t want to waste the seeds but also want a good coverage. I have 625 sq feet enclosure

    I tried just sprinkling them on top of the ground and they didn't really grow. Then I tried loosening the soil a little with a garden hoe and tried again and it grew great. I watered it once a day till it sprouted good. You dont need to go heavy sprinkling them, a little goes a long way. The small bag will last a while.

    Photoshoot! Murphy is a happy guy these days, and loving life. He spends from sun up to sun down outside. Then he comes inside to sleep in his nice warm bedroom suite lol.

    I just sprinkled them over a freshly scraped dirt and they have already sprouted. With all the rain we've had I haven't had to water much.

    He's not the most graceful, but found out today Murphy can swim!

    I seen another thread that said Redfoots can swim so I had to try it. Turns out it's true, both of mine did!

    I accidentally overfilled the tub when soaking Toretto. I never saw him swim but thankfully he can float!!

    Looks like Murphy has had his first issue while with me. I think he's got a bit of shell fungus. Treating it with anti fungal cream IMG_20191013_083832393.jpg
