Here’s how to position your plants for good feng shui
If you want to enjoy the vibrant energy of plants in your home, as well as be sure that they are contributing to good feng shui of your home, it is helpful to know about the best feng shui positioning of plants.
The first way of defining the best positioning of your good feng shui plants is quite easy. You will place the plants in the key areas of your home where they create a welcoming feeling, as well as receive plenty of natural light. The main entry, the living room, and the dining area are the most popular rooms to position your plants for good feng shui. The bedroom is considered to be the worst feng shui room to display big plants.
If you want to go a bit deeper and place the plants strategically in order to strengthen the good feng shui energy in your home, then you would need to define the bagua, or the feng shui energy map of your home.

Once you have defined the bagua of your home, you will focus on displaying plants in the areas that love and need the Wood feng shui element. Why? Well, it’s simple — because plants represent the Wood feng shui element! When you bring a feng shui cure, or any decor item that represents a specific feng shui element into a bagua area that is nourished by this element, you strengthen the good energy in your whole home.
So the next step is to define the bagua areas in your home that either love or need the Wood element for their well-being. These areas are:
It is also important to define the bagua areas that do not want a strong Wood element in their territory, so to speak, as this weakens their energy. It is wise to avoid placing big plants, or a big grouping of plants in these areas so as not to imbalance their energy. The bagua areas that do not like a strong Wood element are:
Yes, it looks like there are more areas that do not want a strong Wood element than the areas that do want it. However, it is all a matter of the right proportion versus avoiding plants in these areas altogether.
For example, if you have a big areca palm and have the choice of placing it either in the Northeast area or in the East area, you would be wise to place it in the East. If you want to place a small plant or a small grouping of plants, then there is more leeway in terms of their right placement in your home.
No matter where you choose to place your plants, be sure they get an adequate amount of love and care; this way they will quickly become not only part of your good feng shui decor but also part of your family. This is in addition to creating excellent feng shui in your space, of course!
