Hey guys, I have 2 Star Tortoise. I tried to soak them in Lukewarm Water but the girls are not pooping. I’ve checked their enclosure and seen their poop. Any tips on what foods to give to make them poop? I’m worried they’re keeping their poop inside their body

You did or didnt see poop in their enclosures?
Not every tort will poop in their soak.
But if you are worried then soak them in a large container like a bath tub and leave them for about an hour less if they poop. Make sure they keep moving around and the water stays warm around 95 degrees.

I saw their poop around the enclosure, they have some space to roam around. Under the balcony is also their space to roam

Just worried for them that’s all, maybe I shouldn’t be worried? Their enclosure has tons of grass and weed and I’ve planted some plants for humid and hiding

Aa long as you have seen poop in their enclosure then don't worry. Like I said before, they don't always poop in the soak.
If you want to see them poop to calm yourself, soak them first thing in the morning and you likely will see them poop.
Btw, it's okay too worry. We have all been there
