I can't really imagine a problem other than the snake / lizard crushing the plants or the tortoise eating them ..

I have no idea what you keep of course

Unless you are keeping species that are marsh or bog dwellers, and in a natural bioactive setup those plants will rapidly die.
They need high humidity, and permanently damp growing media, both are cou ter productive for housing herps.
