The Feng Shui Of House Plant

The following plants all have special air cleansing properties to help de-stress your home or office.

Goosefoot plant


The goosefoot, or Syngonium podophyllum, has the inspiring, ‘upward’ wood energy which is associated with the east or southeast. Place it on a desk or workstation to let its spirit of spring, dawn, youth and new ideas aid inspiration. Goosefoots also like the humidity of a bathroom.



Ferns are particularly good at ionizing the air to help compensate for pollution. They need damp conditions and low light to thrive, making them ideal for bathrooms or north areas.

Devil’s Ivy

Devil’s Ivy

Despite its name, this is a good choice to conceal ‘cutting chi’ in the home. Epipremnum aureum needs only moderate amounts of light and can be cleverly trained to wind around pillars, or hang from a shelf of basket.

Weeping Fig

Weeping Fig

Ficus benjamina is another attractive plant that’s very useful for hiding and softening cutting chi, for example from the sharp angles of walls in an irregularly shaped room. Its twisting stems represent the ideal, meandering path of chi. Put it in front of a pale wall so its plaited form rally stands out.

Peace Lily

Peace Lily

Peace lily is a very accurate name for Spathiphyllum wallisii, which ionizes the atmosphere and can help stabilize chi that is abnormally charged by TVs, computers, microwave ovens, stereos, mobile phones etc. Position the plant near one of these modern appliances.

Aloe Vera

Aloe Vera

Aloe barbadensis is an easy to grow succulent. Its pointed shape is associated with fire energy, so it’s suitable for a window sill in the south, where light will be plentiful. Aloe vera is also ideal in kitchens, the healing centres of homes. Stroke the sap from a leaf onto any cuts or burns.

    Hi …..

    Great site.

    I was particularly interested in the use of Aloe Vera for feng shui around the house. My Subscribers will be fascinated to learn about this.

    I have many Aloe plants but they are all in the garden. I use them as my “first aid” cabinet. There is not much you can’t do with them.

    If you have aloe vera plants in your garden and don’t know how to perpare them for use you may find this link useful.

    Have a top day

    I love the idea of plants, but I seem to have zero talent for taking care of them. It was good to be reminded that my aloe vera plant would be better suited to my kitchen – I’ll go remedy that as soon as I post this.

    I think I’d like to get a Goosefoot plant for my desk. Any idea if it’s safe around cats? I have a cat who likes to lay next to my keyboard as I type.
