Hi guys, I’m wondering if I can put a plant in my tortoise’s enclosure? I’ve planted some cat grass for him and it’s started sprouting so I was wondering if I make the plant pot so he can get into it and eat the grass whenever he wants to would he eat the soil and if he did would he be okay? There’s no pesticides or chemicals in the soil.

Look to make sure the soil has no perlite in it. If there is no perlite, then you can proceed.

I’m not really sure how to know if there’s perlite in it, but I have a picture of the soil I’m using if that helps?
