Is the starfish cactus poisonous? I heard from someone that it is, but does have some medicinal uses as well. I have small grandchildren with me and want to make sure it is safe for them.

It is unknown whether the starfish cactus (Stapelia grandiflora) is toxic or not, but it does have relatives that are toxic. It might be best to keep the plant out of your grandchildren's reach.
