Feng Shui: Need Luck? Go For Bonsai
Cultivating miniature trees, also known as Bonsai, is an ancient horticultural practice popular in China and Japan. The term Bonsai in Japanese literally means ‘planted in a container’, and the plant is believed to bring good luck and harmony. They say that if you receive bonsai trees as gifts rather than buying it yourself, fortune would doubly smile at you. That also makes these miniature plans a perfect gifting item. Keeping a Bonsai in decorative pots is also a good way to beautify the house.
Here are some simple tips to place a Lucky Bonsai Tree at your home:
Variety: Trees and shrubs of many species, of varied shapes and sizes, can be grown as a Bonsai tree. However, the best ones are those with small leaves and flowers, which can be easily maintained. You could pick from jade plant, bamboo, lime or money plant.
Placement: The right placement of a Bonsai is determined by its feng shui element. Clearly denoting the wood element, Bonsai works best if placed in the South bagua.
Keep in mind
Bonsai plants should ideally be grown outdoors, in the garden or patio, where ample sunlight is available. The low intensity of light in the interiors can diminish the plant’s growth. If you wish to keep it indoors, ensure the area is well-lit. Also, take additional care as the small pots have lesser nutrient reserves. Make sure you regularly water and fertilise the plant.
