Welcome to the site! Excellent answer. I've just tried to tidy it up for you.

comment Is there a word to describe mature or adult plants?
The harvesting terms often refer to the fruits not the plant, and like wise the flowers on the flowering plant. There are several plants that stop growing (in size) but wait 1 or more years before flowering. So I'm not sure if this is what I'm after.

comment Is there a word to describe mature or adult plants?
I'm not sure if that's specific enough to what I'm describing. Ivy can be established, but that doesn't necessarily mean it's mature or adult, which seems to imply it's finished growing...

Another example: "You can tell him I'm disinclined to acquiesce to that request"

comment “Director at”, “founder of”. What is the correct usage of “at” and “of”?
@Marcin, I've never heard it before. And as native speaker that phrase in that context rubs me up the wrong way, so to speak. Encounter sounds better though, I'll admit.

In the context, encounter still doesn't sound great. It's worth making a question about it though.

Your phrase 'I meet this' isn't one that's used in English in that context. I think you mean 'I've seen this'.

comment Original use of kosher in the English lanuage
I wasn't really wanting to pin down the exact exchange, but was it known in the colloquial context that early on? @onomatomaniak No I haven't. It wouldn't surprise me if I was told kosher was used in London first, though I understand why it is more prevalent in America/NY.
