I am a true believer in the fact that everyone should have plants in their house.
Let’s start off by saying that they are a great addition to the look and feel of your home. Beautiful plants bring life to an otherwise plain or stale environment. Most indoor plants are quite easy to maintain too. But the main reason is that plants bring both health and feng shui benefits.
Lucky Bamboo & Balance
Traditionally, the lucky bamboo is considered one of the most fortuitous plants for bringing positive feng shui energies into your home or workspace. A well-known symbol of good fortune, lucky bamboo balances all five elements. This plant works best when placed in the wealth corner of your home or workspace. The number of stalks the plant has will determine which aspects it brings the most luck to, so yeah go ahead and find yourself a lucky bamboo with the most stalks.
If you have visited a feng shui aficionado, they would tell you that so many feng shui “lucky” bamboo plants that are struggling to survive, have a poorly neglected look, and the only luck in them is the “lucky to be alive” factor! This plant is actually easy to care and a very tolerant plant. But the feng shui bamboo still needs your love and attention, as it likes to look good, just like you do. Do not be afraid to touch your lucky bamboo and take good care of it, because you are all it has got!
Orchids & Serenity
There is just something special about orchids. They bring a lovely color and serenity to any space. Don’t forget that they also bring the element of love, which can help improve relationships. The specialty of orchids is that they promote peace, they are especially beneficial in the bedroom. For the best results, place your orchid in the relationship area of the home, or in the relationship corner of the bedroom.
Money Tree & Fortune
Also known as Pachira aquatica, the money tree brings fortune and luck. This tall, bonsai-style tree with a braided stem brings the best fortune when placed in the areas for money, health, or fame. It is considered not fortuitous to display them in your area of self, spirituality, and knowledge or marriage and relationships.
Jade Plant & Luck
The jade plant is another plant commonly known as a money tree in feng shui because the round leaves symbolize good fortune. These plants are relatively hardy succulents, so they may be a better money tree choice for those challenged at keeping plants alive. Like the traditional money tree, jade plants are best placed in money, health, or fame areas of the home. You can also place them in an office space to invite success and fortune.
Philodendron Plant & Fire
With leaf shapes that mimic the fire element, the philodendron can brighten up dark corners where energy is lower. They can also bring warmth to cold areas, and the plants do well in artificial light. Place them in a dark or cold corner to bring the energy of warmth.
