Great pun! So far, I read "house plant" as:
1. A living, breathing, green, memorable object in the home.
2. The act of placing (planting) a house.
3. A factory (plant) making houses. (Perhaps they have a future in modular.)

That particular corner of Wicker Park has tiny, irregular lots owing to a pre-grid subdivision plat (I noticed it on an 1870 map on display at the Historical Society), which probably explains the smaller size.

Exactly on all counts. And thanks for the historical tip - I always wondered how that area got so screwy.
