I didn't, at first. Took two years for it to be a truly regular diet. To be fair my sad, tragic ignorance probably played a massive part in this. I can't imagine eating lettuce after over a decade of burgers would be appetizing.

I used binder clips to clip greens of different varieties to the sides of the aquarium. Replace daily or every other day based on freshness/consumption. There were periods of defiance and took so much patience on both of our parts. One of the things that made a huge difference was this stuff. I used duckweed once as a decoration and my filter ate it like a starving diabetic eating cake. It devoured it and paid the price. The duckweed was too small and frail and the filter couldn't handle it. So I bought frogbit, much larger, dealt way better as a decorative piece. BUT my turtle loved eating it. I feel like that provided a real segue to greens. Frogbit was way too expensive to really continue buying but holding out on pellets and constantly providing very fresh greens made for a great transition.

Your turtle can eat $3 lettuces 100% of the time with the occasional addition of pellets and other things. My musk LOVED blueberries by the way. So You might try one as a treat once a month or every other month.

Just be patient. Don't think of your turtle as a kid needing as much food as possible whenever it wants it. Give it a week or two of consistently fresh greens, maybe invest in some frogbit, but don't give up. Take pictures of the lettuce every day if it helps you log how much and whether or not your turtle is eating. Be sure to look at the bottom of the aquarium because the turtle may bite some off but just drop it with out actually eating.
