Jupiter is a Jovian Plant. The adjective Jovian has come to mean anything associated with Jupiter; and by extension, a Jupiter-like planet. The Jovian planets are the gas giants: Jupiter, Saturn, and Neptune. Many, if not most, of the exoplanets discovered to date appear to be Jovian. By contrast, terrestrial, aka telluric, aka rocky planets differ significantly from the gas giant/Jovian planets in that they are composed primarily of metals and silicate rocks (hence "rocky" planets) like Earth, aka Terra (from which we get the word terrestrial) and are "Earth-like" as opposed to "jupiter-like"/Jovian. The terrestrial planets are Mercury, Venus, Earth, and Mars. All the dwarf planets are also more terrestrial than jovian.
