feng shui plants for wealth (8 plants that attract money and abundance!)

Did you know that there are plants you can add to your home that attract money & good luck in Feng Shui?

Plants in general are great for feng shui, because they represent growth and stability (the earth and wood elements!) and they also purify the air and energy of your home.

While any plant that is healthy and thriving will give your home (or office!) an energy boost, there are several that have specific money and abundance enhancing properties in feng shui.

The following 8 plants are the best Feng Shui plants for wealth, money & abundance!

One: Money Tree –

The money tree plant typically has a braided trunk and is a tropical plant, so it needs warm temperatures and plenty of water and humidity. 

I used to think I had a black thumb, but I’ve been able to keep my money tree alive for a couple of years now, so I can tell you that they are good plants for beginners. 

Just make sure you have bright light and don’t forget to water it. 😄

Two: jade plant

Jade plants are succulents, which have round leaves and contain a lot of water. 

Succulents are symbols of abundance in feng shui, and jade plants are symbols of money luck, so jade plants have double the abundance potential! 

Because they are succulents, they also need warmer temps and brighter light (but not direct sunlight or they could burn) and more water. 

They are super easy plants to grow, however, and don’t need much maintenance. 

I like to keep mine in my money corner in the winter and on the front porch in the summer. Click here to check out jade plants on Amazon!

Three: Lucky Bamboo –

The lucky bamboo plant is a traditional Feng Shui plant for good luck, good fortune, and more money, which is why you’ll see so many feng shui experts recommending them for your home and business. 

The lucky bamboo plant is hollow, which means it allows water to move freely through it’s trunk, which is symbolic of moving energy.

Also, many of them are kept in a vase of water and rocks and then tied with a red bow and a coin – which means the lucky bamboo represents all 5 elements. 

If you don’t want to go as traditional as the bow and coin, any bamboo plant is still a great plant for wealth and prosperity. Click here to check out the lucky bamboo plant on Amazon!

Four: Orchids –

Orchids are another plant that like tropical temps, humidity, and bright light. 

But their round, colorful flowers and tall stems make them great plants for prosperity (and also love!). 

They represent serenity and peace, which is especially helpful if you’ve had a tumultuous time with your finances lately.  Click here to see a gorgeous selection of orchids on Amazon!

Five: Peace Lily –

Peace lilies are easy to care for and give you a lot of bang for your buck (so to speak 😉 ).

They are excellent air purifiers, and represent prosperity and purity because of their abundant foliage and tall, white flowers.

Peace lilies droop when they need water, so they are great for beginners or people who tend to overwater.  

They also don’t require a ton of bright light so they are excellent for bathrooms or your desk at work! Click here for an excellent, established peace lily plant on Amazon.

Six: Citrus Trees –

Citrus fruit represents abundance in Feng Shui, so a potted citrus tree is an excellent way to usher in new wealth. 

Plus their fragrant blooms and bright colors add lots of happy energy to your home.

Of course, you can also eat the fruit, use it in high vibe natural cleaning mixes, and share it with friends and family, so that’s a win-win for abundance! Click here to check out a potted lemon tree on Amazon.

Seven: Pothos –

If you can only get ONE feng shui plant for wealth, getting a pothos is my recommendation!

There are so many different varieties of pothos plants that you will never get bored! 

They are low maintenance plants and are a great plant for a beginner house plant enthusiast.

Most varieties don’t need bright light, so they are great to liven up dark corners and renew their energy. 

They are easy to care for and are also great for plant hangers. Plus, hanging them from the ceiling can help raise the energy in any room!

Eight: Pilea –

Also considered a Chinese money plant, pilea is a fun, unique plant to add to your Feng Shui wealth repertoire.

Even the leaves look almost like coins!

They can be difficult to find locally, so I recommend ordering from amazon or asking for a cutting of one from a friend. 

In fact, getting cuttings from friends is also considered lucky in itself! Click here to check out a pilea plant on Amazon!

Even though these 8 plants are considered the “best” Feng Shui plants for wealth, any healthy plant that you love and take care of is good for Feng Shui purposes.

Just make sure that it’s not dying, brown, or super neglected and it can help you boost your abundance.

Bonus plants: Succulents!

Succulents are also great plants to bring wealth into your home. 

Their leaves store water and nutrients, which means they are full of their own abundance, which is exactly what you want when you’re manifesting wealth! Click here to see an assortment of succulents on Amazon.

Are there feng shui plants that are considered unlucky for money and abundance?

While I don’t really believe that anything is “unlucky” and that the energy you bring to a plant is what counts, there are a few plants that are considered a negative in Feng Shui terms.

Cactus: because they are spiky and somewhat dangerous, they can be negative in your space.

When you think in terms of what the plant represents (safety, prickly exterior, defensive) you can think about where you would or wouldn’t want to put them in the bagua.

Usually, they are best outside, where they can protect your home. 

However, I love my cactus plants and I have to keep them in my house in the winter and I haven’t seen any negative effects. 

If you find that a certain area of your life isn’t working (love, money, fame, health) and you just happen to keep a cactus in that area, then try removing it and see if things improve!

cactus dangerous feng shui plants

+ Plants with downward growing leaves, or trailing leaves – can represent downward facing energy and depression.

Again, I would only remove them if something isn’t working in your life and you want to see if removing them helps.

+ Fake plants that are dusty or not well kept. 

This goes for everything in Feng Shui: if you take care of it and you love it, keep it! Just keep it clean and tidy.

+ Dead or dying plants (or cut flowers past their prime) – this means don’t keep your plant hospital in your money corner if you’re trying to attract wealth. 😉

Honestly dead or dying plants aren’t great for any area of your home, but if you are tending them and sending them good, healing energy that will mitigate the problem somewhat.

What are the best areas of your home to place your lucky Feng Shui money plants?

All plants represent wood energy, so use them anywhere in your home that you need growth and new energy. 

Well tended plants will always raise the vibes of your space. 

Also, the following areas of the bagua are great for plants:

  • Wood element – areas of the bagua that are ruled by the wood element: wealth/abundance and legacy/family
  • Fire element – wood feeds and supports fire, so the fame area of the bagua is a great place for plants.
  • Health – the health area (center of the bagua) is great for plants because it will nourish your health and bring an abundance of good energy to everyone in your home.

Bonus feng shui money tip!

If you are focusing on bringing more wealth, prosperity, and cash money into your life, don’t forget to bring plants to your office or workspace too! 

Placing plants near you while you’re working has been shown to increase productivity while creating a greater sense of health and well being – both of which you need when you want to manifest more money and increase your income!
