It’s no secret that plants have a unique ability to aid humans in more ways than one. Be it through eating vegetables, growing greens that purify the air or cleansing spaces of negative energy, potted wonders never fail to help us live healthier lives. Did you know that according to Feng shui, it can bring us good luck, too? If you think you can use a dose of good fortune, make sure to have one of these in your home:
1. Hawaiian Ti
This foliage plant comes in many vibrant colors. Some early Polynesians believed it had mystical powers so growing one in your home is said to bring good fortune to the dweller. If you find one with two stalks, it is said that this plant can attract love as well.
According to Feng shui, plants with rounded leaves bring good luck and Jade is on top of the list. This plant is a traditional gift given to new business owners and is usually placed near the entrance of the establishment to attract clients.

3. Snake Plant
Commonly known as the mother-in-law's tongue, it is said to be a good luck plant because of its ability to absorb formaldehyde and benzene in the air. It can also retain natural humidity when grouped with other houseplants for a balanced garden.
4. Money Plant
This one is quite common in most households! In Feng shui, it is believed to bring monetary gain and prosperity to the dweller. The branches symbolize the five elements, too—earth, water, fire, wood and metal.
