>>What are the exact definitions of all of the synonyms for the word "plant"
in Genesis 1 and 2? Also, what are your takes on the plants of Genesis 2
not having been made because no man was to til the earth, yet they are
created on Day Three in Genesis 1?

These are usually reconciled by having the second word mean "cultivated
plant" as in orchards or gardens, rather than wild herbage.
