Vaastu Shastra for Plants

Effect of Plants as per Vastu Shastra

Ever wondered why big multinational offices, restaurants, hotels, houses etc. have green plants placed at some specific locations? Not only for decorative purposes, let us know more!

Vastu for plants

Plants represent a natural form of growing life. They energize the space with attributes of growth and prosperity and are proven at various places. Having plants in homes and offices is strongly advisable, as per Vastu perspective. Not only do they clean the air, but create an aura of natural freshness and growth for the residents.

Location of Plants as per Vastu

Vaastu Shastra recommends having Plants in your space to promote growth. Plants (both indoor & outdoor), trees, garden etc. belong to the air element and must be placed from East to South directions. Having a green area or a landscape with a garden is the most ideal in the East direction. This not only restores the elemental balance of Vastu, but also acts as a catalyst to create growth and harmony.

Benefits of placing plants as per Vastu

  • Placing flowering plants in the East of North-East direction, may be in a garden or in the form of potted planters (with brown pots) prove to be much beneficial for increasing the element of joy & happiness in the place. It creates a vibration of freshness in the place.
  • Placing planters (with brown or green colour potters) in the East direction boosts growth for the occupants. If the occupants feel that growth is limited, it is recommended to add a few lush green plants with big green leaves in the East direction. Also, having a garden is highly beneficial in the East direction.
  • South-East direction is also favourable for plants. Plants in red colour planters if placed in the South-East direction enhance the attributes of this direction. This in turn improves the cash flow & liquidity, safeguards against losses and provides a feeling of security.
  • Plants in North-direction are also permissible as per Vastu Shastra, but the colour of the planters should be blue, grey or black. Having money plants or plants with lush green leaves in North-invites new monetary and business opportunities and attracts money for the occupants.

Which Plants are good for keeping at home as per Vastu?

Any plants, live plants, are good to be kept at home, except thorny plants. One must ensure that plants do not dry as they will not benefit if dried.

Plants with big lush green leaves, like money plants, and plants which bear flowers are highly recommended as per Vastu Shastra as they increase the positive vibrations in the house.

Are artificial plants & flowers good as per Vastu?

Artificial plants or flowers, as the word implies itself, are not as beneficial as the real ones. The only gain we could have from them would be the impact of colour. Over a period of time, the energy of artificial plants diminishes and they are no longer beneficial. Thus, there seems no strong reason to advise artificial plants as alternatives to real plants.

Vastu Tips for Plants

"Having even a small plant on an office work-desk makes us feel good & tunes our subconscious mind for growth."

The Money Plant (water base) in a blue glass bottle in the North direction works wonders for attracting new opportunities.

Tulsi plants (or any medicinal plants) if placed between North & North-East direction is beneficial.
