It is said that ingesting the leaves, flowers, and especially the seeds of the Bird of Paradise can cause vomiting, diarrhoea, dizziness and drowsiness, although there are few documented cases of actual toxicity.  In the absence of further information we would caution you not to feed this plant to your tortoise, and suggest that you remove any plants that are growing in or near the tortoise enclosure.
