Schefflera Actinophylla and other "unsafe" plants

I've used these many times in the past with my chameleons.
The veilds have always taken one bite, then left it alone, I figured they weren't edible. My deremensis never had a problem with it, it was their favorite plant. They also look great.
Has ANYONE had an experience where their chameleon had a problem due to it? I'm curious, as I have seen it listed as a safe plant for birds, although if ingested it causes vomiting.
I know we want to be as cautious as possible, and not to take a known risk, but I wonder if the potential hazard is significant enough to eliminate it from "safe" plant lists.
I wouldn't use it with veilds, but deremensis, why not?
I'm sure they live on toxic plants in the wild.
By the way--I'm not planning on using this plant in a small cage, if at all, it'll be in a large free-roam type enclosure with many many plants.

I wonder, because it is one of the coolest looking plants for deremensis, they have larger leaves, but are not too dense.

so, has anyone had a bad experience with the umbrella plant, or with any other plants?
