In our previous feng shui post we stated:
“Nature automatically brings fresh air, positivity, peace, and serenity into your home. Research has shown that viewing nature reduces anxiety and stress. Hence, complementing light and air from step one with plants and other forms of nature is one of the easiest steps you can take to feng shui your home overnight.”
Today we give you a nice starter list of just the right plants to take your feng shui decor to the next level.
Feng shui indoor plants are an important part of your decor if you aim is to bring in positivity, calmness, and serenity. The Lucky Bamboo is often considered as the only true feng shui indoor plant because it’s easy to grow and doesn’t require much sunlight.
However, when it comes to feng shui indoor plants, there are a few from which you can choose to match your interior decor and fit any situation.
So, make sure to save this list and start your search for the beauties:
1. Lucky Bamboo
Lucky Bamboo as explained above is the go-to feng shui indoor plant, as it is easy to grow and requires little exposure to sunlight. It can be grown in water, so this also makes it an excellent choice for areas such as the bathroom and kitchen.
This is one plant that does well under both natural and artificial light. Its heart-shaped leaves are the perfect representation of the fire element, which makes it ideal for adding emotion to dark, cold areas of your home.
3. Peace Lily
The Peace Lily does fantastic under artificial light and produces white petals. This makes it perfect for your home or office to spruce up your interior decor or to add a special touch.
The Ficus is a rather large plant but it is suitable for indoors. Due to its size, it can be used as a room divider or to lift low ceilings. Acting as a natural air purifier, this plant can also remove formaldehyde, benzene, and ammonia from the air.
Palms are go-to when you’re looking for a tropical, airy and flowing look. They are large enough to use as a room divider or be the center of attraction to your feng shui decor. Plus, they remove formaldehyde and xylene from carpets, now that’s a win.
6. Rubber Plant
If you are looking to usher in good fortune, abundance and wealth into your home or office, then look no further, as the rubber plant’s round leaves symbolize all those things.
7. English Ivy
The trailing vines of English Ivy help soften any “bad energy” or “poison arrows” that are directed towards you wherever you sleep or work. Ivy removes benzene found in many plastics and helps subdue formaldehyde from paint and carpets.
8. Boston Fern
This plant is perfect for entryways or hanging from ceilings. It adds a lot of life and energy to any space and can spruce up your feng shui decor in an instant.
9. Spider Plant
The spider plant filters elements such as formaldehyde, carbon monoxide and xylene from any room, but especially when placed near a fireplace or wood stove.
10. African Violet
Similar to the rubber plant, the African violet also symbolizes wealth, fortune and success, and is best placed in the Wealth Area of your feng shui interior design.
