About useful indoor plants


Houseplants and flowers can have negative energy or even be vampires. That is why some flowers in the house to keep is not recommended.

Of course, the energy in the house should be positive. After all, it attracts good luck to all its tenants. Earlier we wrote about what plants bring happiness to the house. This article will help you find the ideal energy assistant for you. And today we will talk about which of the flowers at home should not be kept at all.

10 unlucky colors

The Rose. At first glance, it is a beautiful flower that is the king of all flowers. However, the rose is not only beautiful. She perfectly absorbs energy, thus being not a donor, but a vampire. At the same time, the rose gives almost nothing in return, so it is desirable to keep the roses at home only to those who are sure: he has something to give.

Orchid. By its name alone, this flower is able to win your love, but do not be naive. It is said that the orchid takes energy, feeding on the shortcomings of people. This is a pure vampire, which is not peculiar to any restrictions. The orchid rarely takes root in homes, but if this happens, then those who have problems with self-confidence will be even more unhappy. The flower also provokes insomnia. If you are ready to start an orchid against all odds, do not place it next to your sleeping place.

Begonias. These flowers are known for their popularity, but they can easily steal energy from people. True, they attract both positive and negative energy to themselves, which in part can do a good service. Moreover, when the plant shares what is taken, it keeps the negative for itself, giving a small part of the positive back. But do not keep more than one such flower at home, so as not to disrupt the energy exchange.

Lilies These seemingly harmless flowers can provoke scandals. They are dangerous because of their unexpectedness, because they can give the house peace and order for a long time, and then drastically change their energy. Keep lilies where you are rare - for example, in the country.

Lilac. Everyone experiences pleasure passing by a lilac bush in the summer. It is not necessary to cut these flowers home: many national signs say that lilac bears only misfortunes. Earlier we wrote about the magical properties of lilac and the signs associated with it. This article will help you not only learn more about lilacs, but also do the right thing when it blooms.

Tulips. There is a sign that these flowers provoke hair loss, deterioration of the skin and increase nervousness. Of course, many people love tulips, and you should not completely abandon them. Just do not put them close to the house, for example, under the windows of the villa.

Ferns These flowers are good in front gardens and on garden plots. They can beautifully arrange a flower garden, you can decorate the fern with flowers on Ivan Kupala. But experts do not recommend keeping it at home: it absorbs oxygen, emitting carbon dioxide, which means it can reward you with a headache.

Tuberose. This flower smells very tasty, it is even used perfume, but this advantage does not compare with its disadvantage. He provokes treason. If you are married and do not want problems, it is better to give up this flower once and for all.

Hippeastrum. This representative of the world of flora does not like when in his presence someone scandals, pouring out the negative. This flower takes every last drop, giving it away later. If you often have someone quarrel at home, you risk never getting rid of a constant influx of negative energy.

Oleander. In some cases, the smell of this incredibly beautiful flower can cause dizziness. If you have small children at home, then by no means buy oleander as a decoration.

Dwarf steller. From this Japanese flower comes a great danger to young children and animals. Plant sap can cause health problems, which can be very dangerous for children.

Remember that many plants and flowers cannot be kept in the bedroom. This is the most important recommendation from the sages of Feng Shui. The bedroom should be neutral in its energy and not carry any negativity. Earlier we wrote about which indoor feng shui flowers would be most useful. Good luck and don't forget to press buttons and

Useful indoor plants for the house with a photo

The main general rule - in the house should not be sick, dying, and even just unkempt plants. This is explained by the fact that only beautiful for the eyes and healthy indoor flowers can enhance the positive energy of the house.

Therefore: we wash our pets in a timely manner, we remove dry leaves, fertilize, treat, and throw away those who are not subject to treatment.

If you don’t have time to tinker with flowers, get home plants that are not demanding to care: sanseviería (pike tail), oval crassula (cholya), chlorophytum, cacti, bamboo.

Universal home plants that can be placed anywhere are:

Spathiphyllum - "female happiness")))

A fat woman is a “money tree.” Read more about his ability to attract wealth in the article about the “Money Tree, how to plant it correctly, in order to keep money”.

It is believed that they can be kept in any room. In more detail about what kind of flowers should be in the house, you can definitely read the article “About the most useful indoor plants for our house.”

(Perhaps the list is incomplete, add other plants, if you know))

Now general information about which plants can not be kept at home.

What indoor plants can not keep at home, photo

At this point, everything is very ambiguous. If the plant is “harmful” from the point of view of feng shui, then in Slavic traditions it is quite permissible, if, according to popular signs, it negatively affects relations, then it can be kept in the kitchen, not in the bedroom, if it is poisonous, then in the house where no small children and animals would be quite appropriate.

Let's still try to make out in groups which flowers you can't keep at home and why.

What are indoor plants that can not be kept at home on Feng Shui

According to this ancient science, cacti are forbidden in the house.

Sometimes there is the opinion that poisonous plants are also undesirable, but since I do not have a familiar master of feng shui, it is not possible to find out.

About cacti. I want to say a few words in their defense, because I love them very much)).

Is cacti in the house good or bad?

Even Feng Shui itself is not so categorical, experts advise caution to these "thorns", cacti, euphorbia, and not to keep them in the bedroom or nursery. It is believed that they contribute to quarrels, as they make people "prickly." But a study, kitchen or hallway fit completely.

And although scientists categorically state that cacti do not absorb harmful electromagnetic waves (remember how at one time all the small pots with cacti bridges in front of monitors? 😉) coming from a TV or computer, the cactus delivered in the office will be useful, it is believed that it stimulates mental activity and improves performance.

Folk omens are not advised to keep the cactus unmarried women who want to meet their betrothed, because it with its sharp needles "scares" potential suitors.

But if you are not already married, or you are not going to go there at all 😉 feel free to put cacti on a window in a room where you are not permanent, because with the same spines cacti “drive away” negative energy from your home.

Indoor plants that can not be kept at home according to national signs

Surely everyone has heard that climbers and creepers are not in honor, who allegedly “do not allow” men to linger in the house. This, for example, Tradescantia,

Here, again, have their "but."

In accordance with the Feng Shui teachings, it is precisely winding and ivy-like plants that are able to protect the house, repelling the attacks of “poisonous arrows of sha”, that is, negative energy that comes from objects and is directed to a certain place in your apartment. They will also help compensate for the bad energy of the “defective” wall in your home.

From a scientific point of view, many of them perfectly purify the air. Therefore it is necessary to reconsider their attitude to winding pets.

I do not know how Tradescantia fell into disfavor, as “expelling” men, as it is considered a symbol of well-being.

This is a flower that has high energy sensitivity and with its help you will be able to determine if there are any problems at home, and whether family members are not depressed.

If there are such negative moments, then the tradescantia begins to wither, dry, the leaves fall and fall. If everything is in order, then it is able to charge the house with positive energy.

Indoor plants that can not be kept at home for "scientific" reasons

With poisonous plants is understandable - you just need to be careful with them. Make sure that their juice does not get into the mouth and eyes, as well as that they are not touched by children and pets.

Such plants are desirable to know "by sight".

The flower, which is very popular with flower growers, but with "increased toxicity." Even just from its aroma, dizziness can occur, not to mention juice that causes burns, if it enters the esophagus - poisoning, and, once on the mucous membrane of the eye, it can cause blindness. Be careful, even if there are no small children in the house, replant the oleander and wear gloves.

Poisonous, though less, are:


Some varieties of milkweed.

"Vampirism" of some plants is very reasonable from a scientific point of view. So, in the recreation area does not need to have a monster. Although she is not a vampire at all, it simply absorbs oxygen in large quantities, so you may feel that you have “pulled out positive energy” from you.

The same can be said about yucca.

As a result: indoor plants, which definitely should not be kept at home, simply do not exist, because they are indoor plants комнат

I will add a large lyric postscript)) The fact that houseplants have energy and, I would even say, my own feelings and “concepts”, I was convinced by the incident that occurred at work. In the office of the deputy chief, a young athletic man, a beautiful Chinese rose grew.

There was no doubt that she was a “woman” - the smooth curves of the twigs, the constantly blooming red buds and the gentle appearance confirmed her belonging to the “weaker sex”.

To her owner, she was clearly not indifferent, constantly preening herself, opening beautiful buds. But he, like many men, did not appreciate her love and “looking” at the other - a miniature violet in a small pot, decided to replace the tall rose and pulled it out of the office to the reception room, asking the employee who was an avid female dwarf to look after her.

Every day we watched as the rose grew worse; it slouched, dropped the twigs, and sadly dropped the leaves when its former owner passed by, despite his “infidelity,” the rose continued to love him.

With what her experienced summer resident did not fertilize, as soon as she did not rearrange from the sun to the shade and back - the rose was emaciated. Once again, glancing at the almost bald shrunken bush, the deputy head's heart trembled, he shifted a miniature favorite into the corner and brought the dying rose back into the office.

And, you know, she forgave him))) Soothed up, started up new shoots and leaves, and soon again was decorated with delicate buds. Still, she could not be ugly in the presence of a beloved man!

So she “lived” with her owner until her old age, moving from place to place as she changed positions and offices, but, despite the change in the situation, she never faded and fell apart, and is it possible, if near whom you can't live ...

I wanted to describe in the article which flowers should be kept / not kept in the bedroom and in the nursery, which will be useful for the kitchen, whether it is worth breeding the well-known geranium and keeping the reeds at home. But the topic turned out to be so extensive, just material for scientific work))) so I’m writing which indoor plants should be put in certain rooms in the next article, which I will try not to linger on.

Useful properties of house plants

Here are the main ones:

  • In poorly ventilated rooms, carbon dioxide accumulates. Flowers absorb it and saturate the air with oxygen.

Flowers, which are worth growing according to signs

About indoor plants, there are many take, some of them cause confusion. For example, it is believed that flowers will grow better and bloom, if you do not buy them in a store, but steal, pinch a sprig from a beautiful, healthy bush.

To “mitigate” sin, leave fewer coins to the mother plant.

If indoor flowers die steadily with good care, this indicates a bad energy of the room or problems in the life of the owner. If the plant has been standing in the house for a long time and has died without reaching the allotted period of life - this is a bad omen, a warning about a possible serious illness of one of the household members.

Some flowers absorb a lot of negativity and die, taking energy dirt with them.

For an office, the death of a flower in a pot is a precursor to change in the company.

There are many beliefs about the colors that can not be kept at home. According to national signs, lianas fall into the list of forbidden plants, curly potted flowers - they are considered "muzhegon."

It is undesirable to accept as a gift indoor potted flowers. Together with the plant, the donor may get rid of his problems, betraying them. For each flower pot, give a nominal fee, then the “plant decides” that it was bought, and the new owner does not need the adversity of the previous owner.

After hearing and will accept superstitions about which flowers can not be kept in the house, do not rush to throw room pets. If, before receiving negative information, you did not experience discomfort from the neighborhood with your “green friend,” rejoiced at its bloom, you can ignore the frightening warnings.

What flowers can be kept at home

The question of whether it is possible to keep a rose at home is more of a Chinese beauty. About hibiscus or Chinese rose, there are frightening signs. It is believed that the appearance of flowers on the plant is a signal of the imminent death of one of the household or their loved ones. But with good care and positive energy hibiscus can bloom all year round, the tragic consequences in this case will not.

Chinese rose is recommended to keep in the house, if the relationship between the spouses has "subsided". Flower will help return the faded passion. Positive-minded people can safely get hibiscus. Positive interpretation of flowering plants:

  • For a young couple - an addition to the family,
  • For a girl to be issued - a quick wedding,
  • For ladies in age - rejuvenation.

As for prickly plants (cacti, roses, wild rose), they can block positive energy and in no way contribute to creating a pleasant atmosphere.

But signs about flowers in the house, on the contrary, recommend keeping a rose in the room of a young girl. The rosette helps to preserve the chastity of the young lady, and to the young lady at the promise attracts the groom. In a married couple's room, the queen of flowers harmonizes relationships.

Money making plants

House flowers not only delight with their appearance, but also attract money luck. Among these plants:

  • crassula (money tree),
  • zamiakulkas, geraniums,
  • dracaena sander (lucky bamboo),
  • lemon,
  • pahira,
  • money transfer,
  • aukuba
  • bougainvillea,

To enhance the magical power of the selected plant should be placed in the southeastern part of the house, and it is good to look after him.

Choosing a green "magnet for money", pay attention to other properties of plants. For example, creeper falls into the list of colors that can not be kept in the house, it is considered a "muzhegonon."

Want to bring wealth to the house? Plant Crassula! This succulent with fleshy leaves is called the money tree. His oval leaves, falling off, dry up, acquire a silvery shade, and become similar to coins. There are signs of how to properly put a bastard so that it accompanies monetary luck:

  1. It is necessary to pinch the shoot from the bush from rich people, and not to buy a ready-made plant.
  2. Crassul must be planted in a red pot, at least in a green or black flowerpot.
  3. At the bottom of the pot with a plant during planting should be put a few large coins.

If the succulent "deigns" to bloom - the owner can expect an improvement in the financial situation. But if the leaves of the Crassula fall or the plant is sick - this is the harbinger of empty money expenses in the family, ruin. From the pot with a flower should get rid of or pay close attention to the ratio of income and expenses.


This plant is recommended for lovers of international currency. Zamiakulkas are called “dollar trees” and they believe that the plant brings financial profit.

Keep this "exotic" in the house is not only because of the rituals of monetary magic, but also to decorate the interior. Always shiny leaves noticeably decorate the room and improve the mood of the inhabitants.

Oddly enough, cacti are also considered monetary plants. Prickly inhabitants of window sills have aggressive energy, which increases the business acumen of the owner of the plant, improves mental abilities and prevents the "waste" of money. And according to the people will accept cacti deter thieves.
