7 ways to create comfort with plants and Feng Shui

 

-Start from the entrance


Rooms are important, but pay attention to the entrance which leads you to other rooms. This is the place that has great effect on entire fortune. Purification of the entrance will attract good luck to your entire house.

Place plants to the right (as you enter, to the left when seeing from inside of the house). Plants that are strong against cold and can grow in shady area, such as Yucca, Spathiphyllum, Agleonema, Monstera and Sansevieria are recommended.

Bad fortune loves dust and dirt, so leave only minimum number of shoes and put the rest in the storage. Clean the entrance often to keep bad energy away.

 

-Plants for electromagnetic waves


Plants not only purify air, but also said to absorb electromagnetic waves. In Feng Shui, electromagnetic waves are considered as negative energy, and electrical appliances and computers release electromagnetic waves.

Therefore, place plants in rooms with such appliances to purify air, prevent frustration, and relax the impact to digital appliances. Plants like Sansevieria, Dracaena concinna, Cereus peruvianus, Muehlenbeckia axillaris, and Senecio rowleyanus are recommended.

 

-Know the “demon’s gate” and make good use of it


Do you know “demon’s gate”? Northeast is the front demon’s gate and southwest is the back gate. Placing plants at these gates have purifying effect, and also placing plants on the line connecting front and back gate (demon’s gate line) will result in strong purification effect of energy and will improve your fortune.

Just putting plants on these spots are not good enough though. Make sure to keep plants and places clean.

 

-Proper places for each plant

Benjamin – southwest
It is said as a sacred tree in India and Nepal, and it has strong vitality and presence. Its source of energy is cheer and airiness, so it will become weak when there is bad energy around it.

Rhapis humilis – southeast
It will stimulate and move turbid of the air when placing it at the corner of the southern room.

Cactus – besides at demon’s gates or in the middle of the room
Needles bounce back both good and bad energy, so you can expect it to keep bad vibes away.

Spathiphyllum – northwest or north
It will subdue electromagnetic waves when placed by computers or TV.

Ivy – north
Goes well together with water, and brings in good energy. Recommended for bathroom and toilet.

Spider plant – north

Dracaena – east, southeast, south or southwest

-Relaxing effect with round leaves


Plants with round leaves have relaxing effect. You can expect to be calmed down and relaxed. They also have harmonious power that they will ease the feeling of people in the room. When you can’t decide which plant to buy, ones with round leaves are good for sure.

 

-Select plants with clear and beautiful color


There are many plants that you can’t choose at once. First of all, decide where to place your plant and think about its size. Small plants are easy to move and watering, and bigger ones occupy a lot of space, so think carefully before buying.

Also, take into consideration the temperature or the amount of sun light in the room. When selecting plants, the most important thing is to look at leaves. Make sure they are not wilting and look good in color. Check the roots as well.

In addition, check the back of leaves that they are clean without insects, and make sure that roots are not coming out from bottom of the pot. It is better if you can see new shoots. Plastic pots are not preferred in Feng Shui, so replace your plants into wodden or clay pot.

 

-Appropriate watering


Place plants in the light place by the window, pay attention to temperature, and water them appropriately for each plant. Some require more water than the other, and some prefer dry condition. Dead plant attracts bad energy, so clear it out at once and don’t leave it in the room.

Also, plants absorb oxygen and release carbon dioxide at night, so don’t put them where people sleep. Some plants are not appropriate for bedroom, toilet and kitchen, so be careful not to have negative effects.

 

Plants have close relation with Feng Shui, and has important role to heal you and to improve luck. Appropriate places and effects depend on each kind of plants, so place them effectively. Select plants that fit your room, easy to take care of, and make good use of them to make comfortable room.

By enjoying growing plants and interior at the same time, comfortable room will attract good fortune of money, work, health and love. There are more hidden power of plants that you can expect greatly of. Plants are alive, so take good care of them and make sure not to dry them out.
