Sisyrinchium (Pale Yellow-eyed Grass, Pale Yellow Eyed Grass, Pale Yellow Eye Grass)
Do not Feed
Common Name: Sisyrinchium (Pale Yellow-eyed Grass, Pale Yellow Eyed Grass, Pale Yellow Eye Grass)
Latin Name:Sisyrinchium striatum
Family Name: Iridaceae
Despite some of its common names, Sisyrinchium isn't a grass at all, but a member of the Iris family, and most species within this genus grow from rhizomes, although some have fibrous roots.
All parts of Sisyrinchium contain cardiac glycosides which can adversely affect heart and gastrointestinal functions, so we do not advise feeding this plant to your tortoise (although if a small part is accidentally nibbled there is no cause for worry).
