Staff of the Botanical garden and Arboretum
Sometimes we have phone calls asking that someone ate part of a plant. In that case, it is necessary to know the professional name of the plant, ideally to have a sample of the ingested plant to determine (twig, leaf, flower, fruit – if possible), or to take a good photo as documentation.
If something similar happens to you – there is a 24-hours service of the Toxicological Information Centre in Prague in the Czech Republic, phone +420 224 919 293.
You should get qualified answers there. Toxicity can be different for humans and animals.
In addition to primary phytotoxicity (ie the plant is toxic itself), we can also encounted secundary phytotoxicity (the plant was chemically treated – the plant was brought from a flower shop, plant growing in the fields after spraying, etc.).
