I have been working
on a few Fung Shui projects around my home and recently it is really
noticeable how such small things can really work wonders!!
One neat thing and it is so easy, is to get plants that will work in our favor in various ways.
Here are some awesome plants that are easy to buy even in the winter.
See what works in your home for your needs.
Philodendron grows well under both natural and
artificial light, and its heart-shaped leaves represent the Fire element
that can add emotion to a dark or cold area.
Peace lily grows well under artificial light and produces white flowers, making it ideal for office settings.
Jade plants symbolize prosperity, especially when placed in the Wealth Area, which is the back left corner of a room.
A tall ficus can symbolically lift a low ceiling, plus it helps remove formaldehyde, benzene, and ammonia from the air.
Palms are ideal for creating a room divider, and they remove xylene and formaldehyde from new carpeting.
Rubber plants are especially auspicious when placed in the Wealth Area because the round leaves symbolize good fortune and wealth.
Hanging plants like English ivy soften sharp corners, plus ivy removes benzene found in plastics and helps control formaldehyde from carpets and paint.
Hang a Boston fern to fill up a corner or as a welcoming greeter at the entrance to a home.
Another good hanging choice is the spider plant, which filters carbon monoxide, formaldehyde and xylene, especially when placed near a fireplace or wood stove.
The rounded leaves of African violets resemble coins, and therefore symbolize wealth.
Always choose lush, healthy plants and quickly remove dead leaves or
plants since they represent negative energy. If your light is too
limited to grow healthy plants, silk plants are an acceptable Feng Shui
alternative, but it’s best to avoid dried flowers
because they represent dead energy. The best time to add a new plant is
at the beginning of a new month, when it symbolizes a healthy beginning.
