I'm visiting my family back in Korea and I will be gone for a week, but I do not have anyone to give them to for a week. Any suggestion, can my tortoise survive without food for a week, they're around 1~2 years old?.

I wouldn't leave them for that long without someone coming in to check on them and feed them at least every other day. The most I will leave mine is 4 days. However, of those four days, they are really only alone two days. The day I leave and the day I come home makes up the other two days. So I can still take care of them before I leave and when I get home. Do you have someone that can come in and check on them and feed them?

No, their is not really alot of people that can come and feed it, cause it's vacation time here so most of m close friends left to their home countries. I heard that their was an way to plant vegetables inside the enclosure? If i can do you have any idea or suggestions of how to doing it and can you suggest me some good vegetables to plant? That would be awesome!
