Feng Shui Plant Life When, Where and Why

Plant life is a huge part of feng shui and creating a great quality of life in your home, by creating a better quality air supply in your house.

The Philodendron is great for a dark or cold areas of your home, because the heart shaped leaves represent the fire element. This plant is very easy maintenance which makes such a popular indoor plant. While it is a beautiful indoor plant it also removes all kind of VOCs from the air.

Peace Lily

Peace lilies give off empathy, purity and psychic balance, and white flowers definitely give most of that energy. It is a great plant for office spaces, sun rooms and living rooms. Peace lilies do not only put positive energy, they also removes two chemicals from your home: Click Here

1) One of these chemicals is Benzene, which can be naturally given off by gasoline, paint, rubber, tobacco smoke, detergent, and a variety of synthetic fibers.

2) Another is Trichloroethylene, which can be found in paint, lacquer, glue, and varnish. In other words, it’s commonly given off by furniture.

Lucky Bamboo Plant

Wood: The lucky bamboo plant (as do all plants) expresses the feng shui wood element.

Earth: The rocks filling the lucky bamboo container or vase create the foundation of growth for the plant, thereby representing the earth element.

Water: The water the bamboo needs for its vibrant growth obviously represents the water element.

Fire: A lucky bamboo plant used as a feng shui cure should have a red ribbon tied to it—the color red is the expression of the fire element.

Metal: The glass pots that contain most lucky bamboo plants represent the metal element. If your lucky bamboo is planted in a ceramic pot, it should have either a metal coin (Chinese coins for good luck) or a metal figurine, such as the laughing buddha.

There are also many options on how to use bamboo in your interior design plan including bamboo flooring.


Palms are ideal to create a room divider, especially when placed in a colorful planter to activate any missing Feng Shui Elements in a room. Palms remove xylene and formaldehyde from carpeting. Different types of Palms: Click here

Areca palm, scientifically called Chrysalidocarpus lutescens, is a very popular and easy-to-care-for plant. Its leaves have a gracious flow that will soften the energy of any home or office space. It can remove all indoor air toxins.

Lady palm, or Rhapis excelsa, is one of the very best plants to improve indoor air quality. It removes most indoor pollutants. It is a great plant for beginners since it is remarkably easy to grow. 

Bamboo palm, or Chamaedorea seifrizii, adds a peaceful, tropical feeling to any environment. It resists most insect infestations. It has been found to clean the air of benzene, trichloroethylene, and formaldehyde.Dwarf date palm, or Phoenix roebelenii, is a slow grower that can reach heights of five to six feet. It can tolerate fairly low levels of light. It is known for removing most pollutants especially xylene.

African Violet

African violets represent the wealth, because of the coin shaped peddles. The best placement for the African Violet is the Southeast side of any home or garden. As well as their beauty, African Violets are more well known for their ability to clear the air of microscopic organisms lingering in the air.

Spider Plant

Spider Plants filter carbon monoxide, formaldehyde and xylene and are great for rooms with a fireplace or wood stove. They are great for houses with pets because they are a non-toxic plant. Personally I love the look of these plants they just bring light into the room with the amazing curls and shapes.
