Plant Care
Visual Language


As my interest in plants grew exponentially, I wanted to create my own visual language to depict the care instructions for my plants without the need of words. This initial iteration includes information on light, water, temperature, and humidity.

light: red is bright, yellow is medium, blue is low, straight line is direct, wavy line is indirect, placement of line depends on preference of light options

water: solid lines mean keep soil moist, dashed lines mean let soil dry between waterings, semi-dashed lines mean somewhere in between, horizontal lines mean distilled water is vital

temperature: preference for warmer temperatures is indicated with an up arrow, and preference for cooler temperatures with a down arrow

humidity: plants that enjoy humidity, specifically mist, are indicated by circles wheres plants that dislike wet leaves show crosses
