Money plant is grown inside houses based more on the belief that it would bring in wealth than for decorative purposes. According to scientists, the money plant not only adds to the beauty of the interiors but also purifies the air. All these reasons make the money plant the most preferred greenery in homes.
Feng shui, the Chinese vastu sasthra, gives much importance to the money plant. When the plant is placed at the right spot, it attracts luck, say feng shui experts. However, when the position is wrong, it would be bad luck that befalls the residents of the house.
The ideal spot for the money plant inside the house is the south-east side. This is believed to fill positive energy in the interiors. But the money plant should never be placed at the north-east corner, according to feng shui practitioners as it would collect negative energy.
Care of the plant
Money plant needs proper care. The best spot for the plant is near windows as sunlight is essential for its growth. The plant is kept in flower pots as well as ornamental bottles filled with water.
Experts say that having the plant at the workplace also has several benefits.
While having the money plant in the interiors, it should be ensured that sufficient water is provided. In case the plant dries up, it brings negative energy. Feng shui experts consider drying up of money plant as a warning that the wealth in the house could disappear.
Many people believe that a money plant would make them rich, even though such a premise is not backed by scientific evidence. However, as mentioned earlier, unless the money plant is placed as per feng shui specifications, wealth is unlikely to flow into the house.
