C Houseplant Words

Chlorophyll - Chlorophyll is a bit like a plant's green magic; it's the magical substance that, during photosynthesis, turns sunlight into energy, giving leaves their lively color and keeping the whole plant thriving.

Corm - A corm is like a cozy storage room for certain plants—it's this bulb-like thing underground where the plant keeps extra nutrients, helping it survive and flourish. These corms can also be harvested and nurtured to grow more plants.

Cultivar - Think of a cultivar as a plant with a unique personality—someone took the time to nurture and develop it to be a bit different, whether in color, size, or some other cool feature. It's like giving a plant its own signature style!
