1. Money Plant for Money Matters
The name says it all. Money plants are considered particularly lucky and prosperous. They are said to bring health & wealth in one’s life.

2. Avoid Spiky Plants
Cacti has needles instead of leaves and is said to attract negative energy. One must avoid keeping plants that bear thorns inside our homes as they attack our sense of security & comfort, altogether putting us on guard inside our own house.
3. Bamboo Stalks for Wisdom & Luck
Bamboo sticks are indicative of the Ultimate Wisdom – to be flexible & open on the inside, for the spirit to flow easily and heal you completely. One can keep as many stalks as they like but there are traditional symbolic numbers too – 2 for Love, 5 for Health & 9 for Good Fortune.
4. Bonsai In the Backyard, Please
Bonsai Tree plants are associated with the feeling of stunted or limited growth & confinement. They are said to be bad ‘Chi’ and one must avoid keeping them inside the house.
5. Orchids for Love & Harmony

6. Jade Plant for Good Fortune
