There is a lot of conflicting information out there feng shui and plantsI also get a lot of questions about how to treat plants at home, so I thought I’d share my take and clear up some confusion about three common misconceptions I hear.
Myth #1: Plants emit a lot of CO2 at night, so it’s not a good idea to have plants in your bedroom.
Plants release CO2 at night, but in small amounts, and many plants continue to produce oxygen at night. If you’re worried about stuffiness in your bedroom, try opening a few windows.
Myth 2: Bedroom plants get in the way.
There are special types of plants Qi (life force energy) It is about growth and vitality. They encourage us to move forward and move upward. Your bedroom represents you, so changing the feng shui here can have a big impact. If you’re worried about having a plant in your bedroom, take it outside for a few days and see how it goes. If you find yourself sleeping better without plants, respect that, but in the Feng Shui school (BTB feng shui) that I practice and teach, having plants in the bedroom is no problem. There is none.
Myth #3: Spiky plants are always bad feng shui.
If you’re getting a new plant for feng shui adjustments, it’s usually best to have soft, rounded leaves. However, if you have a spiky or prickly plant that you like, don’t throw it away. Plants are living things, so we recommend that you treat them with love. Also, not everything in your home needs to be feng shui adjusted.
We hope these guidelines are helpful when considering plants for your space! There are no hard and fast rules in BTB Feng Shui. My teacher taught me that the best feng shui solution for you depends on your unique situation. Work one-on-one with a practitioner.
