Today we want to focus on these indoor plants that attract good luck to help you create a little green sanctuary to nourish the good vibes and energies in your home.

why use plants for luck?

It's common to hear that it's necessary to have plants at home, as they are able to inject life into spaces. You've probably seen it: a dull, dreary room is completely transformed by the presence of a simple plant. This is no coincidence. According to Feng Shui, plants possess their own vital energy and are capable of balancing the chi, the energy, of a place.

This is not as far-fetched as it sounds, as scientific studies have proven that the presence of plants in different spaces are capable of transmitting calm, reducing stress and helping with the management of anxiety, depression and other mental conditions, as well as helping to increase concentration. Plants have a direct effect on the way we feel, act and perceive our spaces.

Traditionally, plants have been assigned symbolism and correspondences. For example, rue is said to eliminate negative energies and illnesses.

This is because these strong-smelling plants were used in preparations to ward off disease-causing insects, while others had antibacterial properties. These traditional remedies worked, but not because they warded off evil spirits, but because they attacked the causes of disease.

In other cases, the plants were consecrated to deities who were in charge of watching over that particular aspect. For example, the rose is consecrated to Aphrodite and therefore they are the flowers of love par excellence. These correspondences have been transferred to our times, perhaps they no longer have the practical use but the symbol remains.

Plants to change your luck

Chinese money plant: this is a classic of Feng Shui. According to this ancient art, plants with rounded leaves attract the best chi and in the case of this species, the leaves remind us of coins. Although you can place it anywhere in your home, it looks much better in the bagua dedicated to prosperity, which is usually at the back and to the left, counting the entrance of your house as the starting point.
