Feed in Moderation
- Common Name: False Castor Oil Plant (Japanese Aralia, Aralia)
- Latin Name: Fatsia japonica
- Family Name: Araliaceae
This plant is non-toxic (but the berries should be avoided as there are some reports of them being toxic to some mammals) and would do well in providing a shady area for the tortoise enclosure.
N.B. Do not confuse with Castor Oil Plant (Ricinus communis), which is highly TOXIC and should be avoided.
