  • Common Name: Plantain
  • Latin Name: Plantago spp.
  • Family Name: Plantaginaceae

All species of Plantain are good components of a healthy tortoise diet, and can be fed freely as part of a wide variety of plants.  The flower stamens are creamy-white, giving Plantain the appearance of having a white flower when in fact it is brown.  Do not confuse with the fruit Plantain, or Water Plantain which are different plants.
