I have a 10 gallon terrarium with about 20 Madagascar Hissing Cockroaches (they are my class pets). I placed a jade in a pot (organic soil, no pesticides) in the tank as decoration. Apparently, my Hissers love nibbling on the leaves, as quite a few chunks have been eaten. Question is: does anyone know if it is safe for a Hisser to eat Jade? I do not mind if the plant gets eaten (it grows fast enough), I just wonder if anyone knows if there are any ill effects of Hissers eating a Jade Succulent - I'd hate to find out the hard way. Thanks ahead of time for any input or advice!
Thank you everyone for your answers. About three whole Jade leaves were eaten in a period of day, but I took the plant out, as I did not want to take the risk. No ill effects (that I can tell of) so far, but nonetheless. So... Question number two: Does anyone recommend an easy to care for, but small, potted plant that is safe or even beneficial for Hissers? Thanks again!
