Hi guys, don't worry, I haven't fed my hermanns tortoise daffodils. My question is whether I can have a bunch of daffodils in the same room as my tortoise. Is the smell toxic or is it only when they eat them? I've had the daffodils in the room for a day or so and they smell strongly, so I thought I would just check. Thank you!

Tortoise Table says do not feed -Normally cultivated as a garden plant, but can often be seen growing wild in the UK countryside. All parts of the Daffodil/Narcissus are toxic, containing the alkaloid lycorine which causes vomiting, diarrohea and convulsions, and has the potential to damage the nervous system and paralyse the heart. I think as long as they have no access to them then enjoy the smell
