The old image of Morticulturalist

Morticulturalist is an unlockable achievement on the PC, iPhone, iPad, Android, and Nook versions of Plants vs. Zombies. It is worth 30 points on Game Center. To get this achievement, the player must beat Adventure Mode and buy all the upgrade plants and the Imitater from Crazy Dave's Twiddydinkies. To buy all the upgrade plants and the Imitater, the player will need $98,000 total. To make that much money, see Money guide. On the old version's image, Sunflower is winking, just like the one at the end of "Zombies on Your Lawn."

In the Xbox Live Arcade version, this achievement is called Master of Morticulture.


  • Morticulturalist is similar to the Nintendo DS achievement Book Learner. However, Book Learner requires encountering the Zombie Yeti, which means that the player has to play Adventure Mode at least twice.
  • The current icon is a reference to the phrase "green thumb," which means a natural skill for gardening. The hand on the new image only has four fingers and the thumb turns green, just like a regular zombie.
  • 'Morticulturalist' is a combination of the word "horticulture," which means gardening, and the Latin root "morti," which means to have a relation to death or the emotions relating to it. In French, the translation of "Morticulturalist" is "Phytophile," which means "someone who has a passion for plants."
  • The lawn ornament in the Xbox Live Arcade version is a garden gnome, with Crazy Dave's face, holding a Peashooter.
  • Morticulturalist is the only achievement that Crazy Dave personally acknowledges. It is also the only achievement that does not play the achievement jingle when the player gets it.
    • It does play in the Game of the Year version.
