Hoya (Wax Plant)

 Do not Feed
  • Common Name: Hoya (Wax Plant)
  • Latin Name: Hoya spp.
  • Family Name: Asclepiadaceae/Apocynaceae
The Hoya plant is related to the milkweeds which contain cardiac glycosides, and so until more is known about the suitability of the Hoya for tortoises, we do not recommend feeding it (although if your tortoise nibbles some flowers or a leaf there is no cause for concern).
