Phytanthrope, (noun) someone that identifies as a plant in a human body. A plant soul in a human body. Someone that was a plant in a past life and still identifies as such in some way. Someone who psychologically has a strong identification with a species of plant. [1] Plantkin is also an acceptable term. [2]

Comes from “phyto-” meaning plant and “-anthrope” meaning meaning human. 

It was a term I cobbled to together in in February 2013 for myself as a plant-identified person to use due to being tired of people saying otherkin are mythical creatures only even while plantkin being part of the otherkin community. [3]
