With the hope that our contain will help you take care for your own plants, we wish you a happy reading!
The plant index is the easiest place to find all the plant articles of this wiki. Plants are classified in several different ways, making it easy to localize a particular plant, via the alphabetical list, or to find a whole bunch of plants matching a criterion, such as taxonomical family (ex.: Arecaceae, Cactaceae, Orchidaceae, etc), required light intensity, etc.
There is much terminology in the worlds of horticulture and botany; the Houseplant Wiki has given itself for additional mission to keep its own dictionary so that no word written in our article is an unsolvable mystery for the reader.
Help to get you started
The Houseplant Wiki is a sprout of a wiki that aims to become a large and venerable tree. So far, we are not many working on the project; we hope that you will enjoy this green heaven and decide to stay around!
If you have any question about the wiki itself or about editing, you should ask our administrator, Yannzgob.
We have a discussion page, the Greenhouse. Don't hesitate to drop by the place and ask questions, propose things or join ongoing discussions!

About the project
The Houseplant Wiki was created on January 8th 2008 by Ultraice; the wiki however became dormant right away and was ultimately revived by Yannzgob in May 2009. The Wiki's aim is to provide information about houseplants - general information about who they are, what are their needs, how to give them optimal caring and breed them. The Wiki also aims to build a strong database of pests and diseases that may affect houseplants and of all treatments possible, ideally as green as possible. The Wiki is however not restricted to house plants and intends to cover every aspects of horticulture, including gardening.
Expect the Wiki to offer a deep theoretical backing of botany, as per the administrator's formation. However, editing is totally open to anyone interested in participating in this wiki's effort, whether you are a biologist or an amateur gardener. We all have something to teach to someone, and this is in this spirit that the Houseplant Wiki lies.
