The ProRep Tortoise Feed Growing Kit is a complete kit for growing edible weeds for Mediterranean Tortoises. It can be used all year round with additional packs of seeds available to purchase.
Mediterranean type tortoises all make great pets however they do have some exacting dietary needs. In the wild they would range over a large area, grazing almost exclusively on the leaves of annual and perennial plants. Their diet is typically high in fibre but low in proteins and carbohydrates, this can be hard to replicate in captivity.
The wild seed mix contained in the ProRep feed growing kit has been developed after many years of careful observation of wild tortoises and their food plants. The select mix of annual and perennial plants has been grown specifically for the tortoise feed kit and has not been 'padded out' with cheap grass seed that Mediterranean tortoises do not readily eat. This kit can be used all year round to provide a source of nutritious, weed leaves that allow tortoises to graze naturally and obtain a wide range of nutrients essential for slow, healthy growth.
The trays are placed in the tortoise enclosure or the leaves harvested to mix with other food and avoid the use of unsuitable shop bought greens. Harvested trays will re-grow for multiple use.
