Bamboo Plants Feng Shui with Water Fountain
The Meaning of Lucky Bamboo in Feng Shui
For feng shui lovers, lucky bamboo is a magical plant that can bring a very quiet and sensible energy to your home. It teaches the ultimate wisdom: how to be flexible and hollow (open) within to allow the spirit to flow freely and heal your being. The benefits of lucky bamboo in your home can extend to real bamboo grown in your garden, as well as decorations and accents made from bamboo stalks. For example, if you are lucky enough to grow bamboo in your garden, you will know that the sound of the wind blowing through the stalks and leaves is soothing and almost transcendental. The same is true of bamboo feng shui wind chimes, and the energy of bamboo flooring can have a profound effect on a house.
Lucky bamboo factory arrangement
To properly influence feng shui, the lucky bamboo arrangement should combine and represent all five feng shui elements that are considered the basis of a harmonious universe: water, wood, fire, earth and metal.
Wood: the lucky bamboo plant (like all plants) expresses the wind water wood element.
Earth: rocks filled with lucky bamboo containers or vases lay the foundation for plant growth and thus represent soil elements.
Water: the water required for bamboo’s vigorous growth clearly represents the element of water.
Fire: lucky bamboo plants used as feng shui therapy should be tied with a red ribbon – red is the expression of fire.
Metal: the glass pot containing the luckiest bamboo plant represents the metal element. If lucky bamboo is planted in a ceramic pot, it should contain a metal coin (good luck Chinese coin) or a metal statue, such as the laughing Buddha.
When used as a feng shui therapy, the number of stalks in lucky bamboo planting has a specific meaning and should be considered. You can grow straw all you want, but when you use it, you may need to follow some traditional symbol Numbers and use lucky bamboo as a feng shui therapy:
2 stems for love and marriage
3 happy stems
5 healthy stems
Eight stems of riches and honor
9 for good luck
Placing lucky bamboo
For the best feng shui, place your lucky bamboo in your wealth, money or health and family baguette area. If you are using the classic feng shui sticks, then these are the southeast and east feng shui areas of your home. For Western/BTB bagua, place plants in the left and upper left of the house.
Take care of lucky bamboo
We have seen countless “lucky” bamboo plants struggling to survive, their poor appearance and neglect. Their only luck is the “lucky to be alive” factor! Although the lucky bamboo is easy to care for and very drought tolerant, it still needs your care and attention because it likes to look good just like you. Don’t be afraid to touch your lucky bamboo and keep it safe.
Ultimately, lucky bamboo is considered lucky because of its peaceful vitality and strong growth. Cultivating these virtues requires you to take care of it as you would any plant.
