Technical question

Hey, I'm new-ish to the fandom, and my sister was creating what I'm going to dub as a fernsona. It was a completely plant based OC, and I was wondering what that would make her. I know there's several terms to go by, such as furry, scalie, etc. so what would a plant based anthro go by?

Welcome to this fandom! I do hope it will be everything you are looking for. Perhaps you were not looking for as technical of an answer as I am about to offer, but using definitions, I have my thoughts. I would likely say that the most accurate term to describe yourself would indeed be a furry. Whilst the fandom itself cannot agree on the precise definition of that word, it generally appears to surround the affinity for anthropomorphism; specifically within animals. Your fursona is a ferret/plant with human attributes, which makes it anthropomorphic, given the definition of anthropomorphism.
  1. the attribution of human characteristics or behavior to a god, animal, or object.

Plants aren't furries. The proper term is Photosies

Oh I am very much aware that my ferret/plant is a furry, and thanks for the welcoming! :)

I was asking about my sister's oc which is straight up an anthro plant lol.

I do recall knowing someone who had a pomegranate as a fursona.

My bad! In that case, does she like anthropomorphic animals? If she does, I would perhaps argue that she is indeed a furry. Ha!

No worries at all! She kinda likes em, but her preference definitely leans towards plant/human hybrids atm
