What is Feng Shui?
Feng shui is the Taoist practice of arranging buildings, furniture, plants, and other objects in an environment to create a sense of harmony between the objects and the space. Originating in ancient China, feng shui has grown quite popular in other countries, including the United States. The purpose of feng shui is to arrange a room or space, so the objects within it are in harmony with one another; Taoists believe that harmony between yin and yang creates a smooth energy flow that will promote good health and luck.
What Makes a Houseplant “Feng Shui?”
The practice of feng shui has been active and prospering for over 4,000 years, and ancient Chinese architects and designers planned entire cities around the principle. On a smaller scale, individual rooms and gardens are an excellent way for anyone to enjoy the practice. It is calming, meditative, and quite fun to do if you enjoy home decor!
Houseplants play a vital role in any home design as their bright greens, and organic shapes complement just about any surrounding. If you plan on designing a space with feng shui in mind, include some leafy friends– they’ll help bring some nature into an otherwise lifeless space. The plants in our feng shui collection prioritize leaf shape and growth pattern over all else: when you raise one of these plants, they’re sure to stand out! Plus, you can prune your plant however you need to keep things looking lovely in your space.
Things to Remember When Placing Your Houseplant
Before you place your plant, there are a few rules to follow so it can stay happy and healthy in your new space. Consider these restrictions a fun challenge to your arrangements:
- Most houseplants like bright, indirect sunlight. Make sure you place your houseplant somewhere it’ll receive enough sun to grow properly.
- You may have to rotate your houseplant every so often to ensure it gets even lighting.
- Make sure your room has good air circulation so it doesn’t sit in stagnant air for extended periods. Your arrangement should already promote good airflow!
- If your houseplant needs humidity control, include that in your planning.
- Make sure you can reach your houseplant! You’ll still need to water, prune, and repot it occasionally, so it’s always good to have easy access to your plant.
