Top definition
A lover of succulent plants who practices proplifting - secretly taking fallen succulent leaves/pedals from others' plants - for the purpose of propagation (growing a new plant.)

Depending on context and emphasis, "petalphile" might be used as a derogatory term, but is usually heard as a quasi-humorous term of endearment.
"I saw you pocket those fallen succulent pedals in the store - you're such a petalphile." (Be sure to enunciate clearly to avoid ambiguity and confusion of this with the similar, but deadly serious, term from which this is a play on words.)
