Total Nutrition for Tortoises (TNT) sale!
Dried weeds, flowers and plants are an excellent way of supplementing grocery store greens. They add fiber, balance the amino acid content, provide the most bioavailable calcium. The ground weeds flowers and plants are easy to mix with store bought produce. They nutritionally similar to their non dried counterpart, just minus most the water (dried plants are typically around 5% water whereas their fresh counterpart is 95% water)
