About Us

Welcome to Houseplant Dictionary! I am Elizabeth and I am the creator of this website and blog! This page will give you a brief history of Houseplant Dictionary and some information about me. If you want to know more, feel free to contact me, houseplantdictionary[at]gmail[dot]com.


Brief History

In August of 2018, Houseplant Dictionary was created after I spent hours researching my 60+ houseplants in an attempt to find basic and simple information to help me take care of them properly. I found it very difficult to find all of my plants in one place or all of the information in simple terms to help a newbie learn quick. 

While Houseplant Dictionary is by no means a complete dictionary, we are constantly growing and learning. For legal purposes, we only have images of plants that we own (though the collection is ALWAYS growing. If you are looking for a particular plant or breed and we don’t have it, let us know!

The goal of Houseplant Dictionary is to help you learn more about your houseplants in a quick and simple way!


About Creator

I am a full-time graduate school student studying clinical mental health counseling. My ultimate goal is providing support for those who need it and want it. When I am not studying I enjoy practicing yoga, painting, spending time out in the sun and in nature, and organizing. Overall, I am an optimistic person who values self-care and the creation of a better way of living.

Houseplant Dictionary

I am a houseplant addict and collector. Houseplant Dictionary is my way of learning about my houseplant, sharing what I know, and working with other houseplant addicts!
