Petunia

 Feed in Moderation
  • Common Name: Petunia
  • Latin Name: Petunia spp.
  • Family Name: Solanaceae
Tortoise keepers have included Petunia in the tortoise diet for many years without any ill effects.   Although there is no evidence of toxicity, this plant is in the same family as the toxic nightshade species, so we feel it is wise to err on the side of caution and probably best to offer Petunias in moderation, and as part of a wider, varied diet. The flowers of Petunia can be found in a wide variety of colours. See also Million Bells.
