Feng Shui Plants

Plants symbolize prosperity and are considered auspicious in Feng Shui. Chinese linked the plants with the source of feelings and hopes. However, everyone perceives plant differently and you can exercise your own discretion in the selection of the plants. Infact, the more pleased you are with the plants, the more positively they will affect you. At the same time, you should be careful about the location of the plants.

They should be kept in a place as per their respective requirements, as Feng Shui cannot act as a substitute for good soil and sunlight. In Feng Shui, plants are also classified depending on the energy content and effect. They are associated with the five elements of Feng Shui. Woody plants are considered good for modification and movement. Fire plants, such as sunflower or daisy, symbolize beauty and humor.
