Feng Shui and Plants

Many people are familiar with plants having meaning behind their color- for example: red carnations mean love, but yellow carnations mean rejection!

But did you know that some plants are said to have meaning and symbolism behind them in general?

Many businesses have decided to upgrade their style as people have begun to return to offices. As such, many have consulted books on Feng Shui to ensure their space is harmonious and serene- even amidst the chaos of Silicon Valley!

What is Feng Shui?

Feng Shui is the practice of intentionally placing pieces of living spaces in a way that creates balance. It comes from the Chinese words "Feng," meaning wind, and "Shui," meaning water- the concept as a whole was taken from a poem that speaks about humans' connections to nature. A main goal of Feng Shui is to ensure that you, your space, and nature are all in harmony.

Plants are an integral part of Feng Shui; at their core, they attract prosperity, balance, and harmony wherever they are placed. Below are some popular choices for purposeful decorating and what their meaning and intent are said to be!
