Saxifrages come in a wide variety of forms, from succulent, sun-loving plants to leafy shade-lovers, but all can be added to the tortoise enclosure and diet without harm.  If you are growing Saxifrage inside the enclosure you will need to restrict access, or it will be eaten to the ground quite quickly.
