How to attract good fortune with plants

June 18, 2019

 

Wood is one of the five elements of feng shui which, if used properly, can improve the flow of energy in your home or office. It symbolizes growth and new beginnings and is represented by the colors brown and green.

One popular way of activating the yang energies of Wood is through the proper use of plants. To benefit from the positive influences of this element, know that it takes more than just ‘talking to your plants’ to make sure that they grow abundantly and healthy.

Your efforts to keep your house clean and organized should also extend to your plants in the garden. Weeds and any unwanted growth can harm the good feng shui of your home, so try to take them out as often as possible.

Pay attention also to the shapes, colors, and texture of your plants as they may have corresponding luck indications.

 

Top Garden Favorites:

Lucky bamboo is one of the most favored plants to have because it symbolizes good fortune and does a good job of balancing all the five feng shui elements. It is best placed in the wealth corner of your home or office. It is believed that the more stalks there are in the arrangement, the more blessings of good luck it brings.

The jade plant is favored in feng shui because the round leaves symbolize good fortune. These succulents are easy to care for and does not need frequent watering, so they may be ideal for those challenged at keeping plants alive. They are best placed in money and health corners of the home and office space to invite success and fortune.

Money tree (Pachira aquatica) is a tropical plant characterized by several braided trunks and multi-foliage leaves. It needs plenty of light and consistent watering. Like the jade plant, it is best placed in the wealth, health, and fame areas, but not in the love area and definitely not in the bath room.

 

Other Feng Shui Plant Tips

·         Healthy plants with vibrant foliage attract growth and positive energy to your home.

·         Dead plants symbolize stagnant energy; take them out.

·         Choose plants with rounded leaves.

·         Use flowering plants to attract love energies.    

·         Avoid fake plants; they indicate inauspicious energy.

·         Thorny plants like cacti are also thought to bring negative energy because of their spikes.

·         Plants with downward foliage growth patterns (e.g., weeping willows) bring indications of sadness or depression.
