Springtime and Plants - Some easy Feng Shui tips!
Updated: Mar 25
Happy Spring, the time of rebirth and renewal, when all things dormant come out of hibernation or up from under the ground. For me, the croci, one of the first to blossom in March, is always a harbinger of Spring and warm weather to come. The daylight stays longer, the sun feels strong, and the air has that smell that reminds me warm weather is just around the corner. In Feng Shui, the area of life for Spring is Family, representing New Beginnings. The colors for Family are green, blues, and teals, and the element is wood, which makes plants the perfect representation for Spring. We love using plants in Feng Shui. They are not only great decor but bring live energy into your space and purify the air. The key is healthy, green plants. This means no dying plants or dried flowers, please! Having a plant on your desk is recommended for where you work. A perfect plant is the money tree. I have a client who has the most beautiful money tree in her money corner, and her plant's name is Esther. The money corner of our desk is also known as the Wealth & Prosperity area. It is on the far left area corner from where you are sitting. This is true for a floor or room, the area in the far-left corner from the doorway. When plants are placed in the Wealth & Prosperity area, their live energy enhances prosperity and abundance in the home. In addition to the money tree, here are some other smaller plants I like to recommend:
Jade and other succulents (except Cacti because spikey plants are not great Feng Shui!)
Peace Lily, also known as Spathephilum
Use larger houseplants for the Wealth & Prosperity areas in your room or home. Here are some of my favorites:
Put the plants in a blue or teal pot, and you're good to go!
