Plants always add a fresh touch to rooms and, according to the feng shui philosophy, the benefits are far more than aesthetic. If you want to add more plants to your home, you can opt for the lucky ones according to the feng shui philosophy.
How can plants affect energy?
Feng shui, a philosophy that originated in ancient China, is about balancing wood, fire, earth, metal, and water. Feng shui experts say that houseplants are related to the tree element and add vitality, kindness, love, and resilience to their space.
Besides, the tree also represents new beginnings as it nourishes the fire element and helps us face change. Plants, wooden furniture, the touch of nature in our homes influence us to reach new paths and expand ourselves.
