Nor have mine (the Cardiocrinum) been touched. This is beginning to sound a bit like what happens with deer: in some areas, certain plants are never touched. In other areas, those same plants are browsed. Then there is the situation where certain plants are not touched for years, and then the deer begin to browse them. I've often seen box turtles dining on Aminata - I wonder what happens to someone who then makes turtle soup with that turtle? Or for that matter, what happens when some adventuresome gourmand serves slugs prepared as 'escargot' - slugs which have been dining on some plant toxic to humans? And by the way, does anyone know if slugs are edible for humans? I would think that if you can get yourself to eat a snail, can a slug be much different?
