As per the Chinese Feng Shui and the Indian tradition of Vastushastra, growing a lucky bamboo in homes and offices would bring good fortune and wealth. Besides, it fills the interiors with positive vibes too. Lucky bamboo is not just an attractive indoor plant, but a symbol of luck and good fortune. The popular plant is available in multiple shapes and sizes in the market. In order to achieve the desired effect, the lucky bamboo has to be placed at the right spot inside your house. Here are some tips to arrange the lucky bamboo perfectly at homes and offices.
Feng Shui says that the hollow stem of the bamboo is what channelises the positive energy. The pipe-like structure helps in filling the interiors with wealth and good luck. The lucky bamboo emits positive vibes from the stem into the house and vice versa.
The right spot
Usually, the lucky bamboo is placed on the east side of the interiors. You could also place it on the south–east side to attract wealth. You could easily tide over financial struggle and enjoy wealth if the lucky bamboo is placed in this spot.
Keeping the lucky bamboo in the middle of the dining table fills the interiors with positive energy. Besides, this is the perfect spot to ensure that lady luck smiles on you. Lucky bamboo could also be placed in the bedroom as it requires minimal sunshine and care.
Placing a lucky bamboo close to the entrance door of the house would add good luck to a new beginning. Moreover, lucky bamboo can reduce pollution inside the house by eliminating the toxins.
The number of stems is significant while arranging the lucky bamboo at homes and offices. Interestingly, the numbers denote specific purposes. Arranging two stems in a bunch would shower you with luck to find your perfect match. Meanwhile, five stems fill you with happiness, six grants good health and eight attracts wealth. Keep a bunch of nine lucky bamboo stems to ensure that you have a great future. Ten stems promise improved quality of life and eleven denotes luck. Twenty one stems shower you with blessings. However, do not gift four stems of lucky bamboo to anyone as the number attracts death.
Lucky bamboo container
Lucky bamboo is a versatile indoor plant that can be grown in any container. It could be grown in glasses, jars, vases and porcelain or ceramic pots. There should be a gap of at least 1 inch between the plant and the container. To enjoy the maximum benefits out of lucky bamboo, it should be arranged in harmony with elements like soil, metal, timber, water and fire. Pebbles could be used instead of soil. Drop a coin in the pot to ensure the presence of metal. The steam could be considered as timber. Pour water in the container and tie the stems using a red ribbon to symbolise fire.
Only a healthy lucky bamboo can ensure the desired effects. The plant should be tended with care, rather than placing them in homes and offices as a decorative feature.
Yellow stems should be removed immediately.
Do not use chlorine water in the container.
Lucky bamboo shouldn’t be placed at a spot where sunlight hits directly.
