Here are 6 plants that will benefit you at your workplace
According to Feng Shui, plants with rounded leaves bring wealth and fortune. The Jade plant is known as the Japanese money plant and is said to bring prosperity and financial success.
Interestingly, the lucky bamboo is not a bamboo at all- it is a dracaena. The plant is known to bring an incredible amount of wealth, fortune, health and peace into any space- be it the home or the office. The plant is quite low maintenance, but it requires some trimming from time to time. This is a small price to pay for the good fortune this plant can bring to you.
As the name itself suggests, the money plant brings economic success into your life. The plant has a braided stem and well-rounded leaves which can form a beautiful canopy. The tree grows well in moist soil, so it needs to be watered regularly. Also, it needs to be kept in medium sunlight or in partially shaded places.
Although this plant looks exotic, it needs surprisingly low attention. They bear flowers that stay in full bloom for long periods of time. They are natural air purifiers and fresheners and stand as a symbol of positivity and goodwill. If you love flowers but do not want to encumber your office space with delicate blossoms, this sturdy yet beautiful plant should be your first choice.
Dragon trees are also known to bring good luck to the workplace. Also, they remove toxins from the air and are very convenient to grow. The dragon tree does not need to be bathed in water- just a spray or a wet wipe down is enough for this plant. It also requires no direct sunlight. This is why this plant is such a popular choice when it comes to the workplace.
This plant is the most effective natural air purifier out there. It can remove the toughest of waste in the air. It is a good choice for closed offices which do not have adequate ventilation. Also, if your workplace is near a smoking zone, you should keep this plant, since it is a good absorbent of smoke. Although it does not have any Feng Shui attributes, its cleaning characteristics make it a worthy contender on this list.
The art of Feng Shui suggests that while looking for lucky office plants, you should select the ones that have rounded leaves and clustered canopies. Also, you must keep away thorny plants from your home and workplace since they are said to obstruct the inflow of positive energy and wealth. Only take as many plants as you can manage, since at the end of the day you will be responsible for their well-being, and in turn, yours.
