Plants, just like us people, plants bring positive energy and good fortune. Science tells us that plants really make a difference in your home.
This is why many people believe in feng shui, which is the ancient practice of observing how the placement of objects effect the energy flaw in an environment, and how it influences the personal energy flow of people within space.
