Edibility of ti leaves?

MikeG | Oct 1, 2008 09:27 AM

Heaven only knows if I'll ever get around to using the leaves to cook with, but I recently came across a greenmarket vendor selling ti plants for cheap and, to make a very long story short, bought one. How well it will grow under my HID growlight is another story, but I was wondering if anyone knows if any of the ti plant/Cordyline species are toxic to humans? This one isn't labelled but the most common species seems to be C. terminalis for whatever that's worth. I assume/hope it's non-toxic (one doesn't actually eat the leaves, right?) not but haven't been able to dig up anything useful with Google and figured I'd toss the question out here...
