Hi all I am still trying to figure out if these succulents are safe for my torts. If any of you can help me I would be so very happy, even though I know my plants well but succulents always throw me lol.

Sedum spp. (just says sedum spp. on the label)
Kalanchoe blossfeldiana (I believe is toxic)
Kalanchoe panamensis
Crassula perforata
Aloe zanzibarica
Graptosedum (just says Graptosedum species on the label)
And this questionable one (looks like jade)
Pachyveria 'Belle Blue'
Echeveria parva
Crassula lactea
Pachyphytum bracteosum
Crassula lycopodioides (watch chain)

Please help me if you can.

Sedum is safe and torts like them
Kalanchoe- do not feed-
Jade or Crassula perforate -feed in moderation-
Aloe zanzibarica--don't know...sorry!
Pachyveria --no idea
Echeveria are "Hens and Chicks" which are non-toxic
Crassula lactea & Crassula lycopodioides (watch chaine)--since it's in the Jade/Crassula family I would assume "feed in moderation," but don't know for sure on either one.
Pachyphytum bracteosum -

You may want to bookmark the tortoise table website:

The University of California also has some handy plant pages that list totally non-toxic plants by common name or scientific name. They also have a toxic plant list that lists how the plant is toxic.

You can also find quite a bit of info simply by typing " is (name of plant) toxic)" --when you do this, you can often find other names for the plant, which you can then type in to the tortoise table.
