Favorable plant is a very good source of energy Jansky, but there are plants unfavorable - they can bring a different trouble and aggravate Feng Shui. Severe environments are plants with thorns and prickles. If you have a cactus - get rid of them, because their spines are a constant source of sha chi, and this is sure to affect you.
Yin emit energy as sick and dead flowers and trees. Because if you decide to register your apartment or office with flowers - approach to this matter carefully, wisely. It is advisable to choose flowers with rounded leaves (eg, monetary (cash) tree is a classic in the Feng Shui symbol of wealth, and leaves of this tree is almost circular - as coins). Live plants must be healthy, have a bright, clean leaves.
When the plants are sick - they must be changed. You may have to change the plant every month - this often happens when a living plant to use as protection from massive acute angles. If you decide to use for decoration, artificial plants - watch for their cleanliness and timely change faded copies. If you run a home or office garden and your plants will die - this situation will affect the Feng Shui of the premises, because plants will be a source of Yin energy.
You can put flowers anywhere - this excellent source of Yang will always give you stock vivacity. But we should not place flowers in the bedrooms, because There is desirable slight predominance of Yin energy and plenty of flowers in this place can affect the tranquility of your sleep. In general, there is a hypothesis that some plants pull energy from the person violates his aura (another reason for the removal of live plants from the bedrooms). But not all plants are bad. And yet, if you feel uncomfortable, being in a room with lots of flowers - the flowers better to remove.
How to choose a pot for flowers?
Desirable to choose clay pots, well-deification. If they are not very attractive, they can be put in a nice decorative pot. Porcelain, glazed or painted pots are not desirable, because they do not allow air to the roots. Pots made of plastic, too, yield to the clay on the desirability, even though they are most prevalent.
We must now choose the size of the pot. Dishes, in which transplanted the plant should not be particularly large. It is necessary to take such a pot, which fits with the room and around the plant roots can pour a thick layer of fertile land to small pots in one, but for large - in two fingers. Practically, the new pot is quite sufficient, if it fits the old one.
Preparation of pots for planting.
Before planting the pots need to prepare - wash with hot water and scalded with boiling water. Clay pots and then (to neutralize the lime in the walls of the pot) are soaked in water, which dissolved a bit of superphosphate to the walls of their soaked in a solution. New clay pots in the evening soak in water.
Transplanted plants to improve the nutrition of the plant and increase the volume of soil to accommodate the roots, as well as improve air permeability of land for better access of air to the roots. In addition, the transplanted resort in cases of plants, damage Pot, etc.
The best time to transplant plants is spring, when plants begin to grow vigorously. This period is in March-April, and some small and delicate plants transplanted in May. Plants blooming in spring, transplant, if necessary, after flowering. As a rule, repot the plants in the flowering period is impossible. Coniferous plants are transplanted in the summer after the spring growth. All bulbous plants transplant better after passing through a dormant period. Small and young plants require almost annual transplants, whereas large plants growing in large pots, tubs, can be transplanted after 4-5 years.
The correct way to determine the need for transplants is viewing coma earth excavated from the pot. For this plant with pre-moistened lump overturned on the left hand, which are followed by loss of anyone from the plant. His right hand holding a pot, and tap it on the edges of the edge of the table that would remove from the coma of the earth. Com excavated carefully researched. If anyone is densely braided roots forming on its surface like thick felt, or if acidified soil, the plant should be transplanted. Transplant necessary in the case, if the land is exhausted, the plant does not increase, the ends of the leaves wither, and the roots went through the drain hole.
Drain closed shards or pieces of broken bricks. Then poured a thin layer of coarse sand. Water the plant. An hour later, remove it from the pot, taking the pot from the top hand. Turn the pot and lightly tap it on the edges of the table. If necessary, separate the plant from the inner walls of the pot with a knife. With the other hand remove the pot.
Remove the old crocks. Trying not to damage the root system, carefully release some of the outer roots. Otgnivshie remove the roots. At the bottom of the new pot Sprinkle a layer of earth. Top of it, install the plant and gradually fill the gap between the walls of the pot and a clod of earth moist earth. Seal the land around the coma thumbs, gradually podsypaya land until its level equals the base of the stem. Several times Tap the pot on the table that would have settled the land.
Caring for plants after transplantation.
Liberally drizzle the plant and put in the shade for about a week, daily spray the leaves, so they are not faded. Then move the plant to a permanent place and care for him as usual.
All potted plants require a certain amount of nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium and small amounts of trace elements. Only then can they grow up healthy and to form flowers and leaves of the desired size. The soil in the pot contains a limited supply of nutrients, which are constantly taken out of her roots and go with the water through the drainage holes. When the supply of nutrients is exhausted, the plant in the period of active growth should be regularly fed. Cactus can live without feeding for a long time, but the strong decorative foliage and ornamental flowering plants are severely affected, without feeding.
Signals of danger.
Lack of minerals:
- Flowers are not formed, or they are small and pale-colored;
- Weak stems, premature opadanie lower leaves;
- Pale leaves may appear yellow spots;
- Slow growth, low resistance to disease and pests.
- Drooping leaves;
- White crust on the soil surface and the outer side of the ceramic pot in areas with soft water;
- Summer: the suspension of growth, in winter: the weak elongated stalks;
- Dry brown spots and leaf margins.
What to feed?
Fertilizers for indoor plants are almost always complex and contain nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium. According to the rules on the label shall be indicated by the contents of these elements in%: if some of these elements is not specified - means it is not in the mixture. In fertilizers may include other components, such as humus extracts, trace elements, etc.
- Insoluble powders and granules.
Powder and granulated fertilizers are widely used for open ground, but in the indoor floriculture they are rarely enforced. Fertilizer is poured on the soil surface, where it does not immediately get to the roots, where it is actually needed. In addition, it can not be removed with the onset of dormancy in plants.
- Soluble powders and granules.
Dissolved in water and this solution is poured over the plant. In principle, this kind of fertilizer can be attributed to liquid fertilizer.
- Tablets and sticks.
Immerse pill or a stick in the ground is not difficult, but this method has significant shortcomings. Nutrients are concentrated in one place, and remove the feeding of the ground with the onset of dormancy is very difficult.
- Liquid fertilizer.
It is believed that this type of fertilizer - the most effective way to feed the potted plants. Watering and fertilization are carried out simultaneously, thus, saves energy and prevents the danger of overdose of nutrients. Fertilizer at the recommended dose is added to the water, which is then used instead of ordinary water for irrigation.
If a plant grows in a special soil mix, then the feed strongly not recommended. At some points in plant nutrition is not needed in others - is determined by the size of the plant and pot size. Most often fed with irrigation during the growth or flowering. In the dormant period the plant is not fed or decrease the dose of fertilizer.
In the soil of potted plants for nutrients missing about 2 months after transplantation of the plant. After that, if the plant does not rest, he needs feeding. In the period of growth and flowering should be fed regularly. In the period of rest or reduce the feeding fed.
Plants - strange creatures, and every person they have formed a special relationship. They feel when they love and joy to them or, by contrast, are indifferent as to the subject of the interior. Check neighborhood with which flower will do you good, you can only practice.
Try to analyze its condition, and you may feel as if a flower that affects you and the relationship in your home. Plants in an apartment not only improve the Qi space, but also create additional Qi. Potted plants - a sort of nature in miniature, they symbolize the prosperity and health. In the window plants filter the bad energy, at the head of the bed - improve qi sleeping in the corner of the room - do not allow the Qi to stagnate.
Feng Shui is widely recommended to use plants and flowers for the recovery and improve the flow of energy. This is an excellent countermeasure against any kind of sharp corners inside and outside the home. Add the house creepers with oval leaves - and the peace and tranquility reign in the house. Plants are considered to be carriers of energy, act as a sponge, absorbing and refreshing energy of qi. They can slow down the too rapid movement of energy in the long corridor and, thanks to its live essence, transform energy, stagnant in the corners.
But avoid plants - pests with sharp leaves, spot color and spines (cacti and some types of palm trees) - they create bad energy which gives birth to conflicts and setbacks. And not recommended Turns plants in the bedroom - where they spoil the happiness of a loving woman, lead to quarrels and unfaithfulness of spouses. Correctly picked flowers in the house - not only improves health, but also character.
Melancholic and phlegmatic be settled down in her apartment plant, blooming bright - red, orange, yellow flowers. Choleric and sanguine more appropriate flowers bluish, violet, white tones and soft greens. Violets, tea roses, chrysanthemums - calm discourage the desire to "let the dogs". Tsiperusy, dieffenbachia, philodendrons normalize humidity, soften it. They are well placed in the kitchen.
Just lazy, regardless of temperament, it is better to do cultivation aloe, cacti and ornamental palms. (Palm trees - not only delight the eyes, but our pets therapists). Accidentally discovered in her house a cactus in a few months after purchase, such people will be surprised that he had not yet dried up and looks good. Cacti are good in that, along with extreme unpretentiousness they have a strong energy, but also able to pick up a heavy negative energy. It is believed that dogs and cacti do not coexist in the same house. In the presence of dogs cacti begin to ache. Cacti, of course, desert dwellers, but do not forget your water the same all prickly assistants: in excessive drying of the land cacti begin nurtured energy at home.
Ficus has always been one of the most favorite houseplants, and not without reason. He puts out great aggressiveness and anger, creates a favorable atmosphere in the house and promotes harmony in relationships. Most ficus compared with a vacuum cleaner, which cleans the space from the dust of our worries. In the recent past, a poor fig tree was a symbol of bourgeois life, but now more and more plants of this family appear in our homes.
The most common type - is Ficus elastica, and rubber tree, a total of more than 800 species of figs. They love the bright room, moderate watering and frequent spraying, especially when operating heating. The most common geranium produces compounds that protect the body from cancer.

Here are the main ones: decorative foliage, fragrant, noble or English, plyuschelistnye (balcony geraniums), zonal ( "standing" geranium). Most pelargonium have luxurious white, red or pink flowers that look very decorative.
Scented geraniums, probably the most unprepossessing in this family, they exude the smell of roses, lemon, peppermint, almond, lilac or apple. In England, geranium flower called the poor, obviously, because of its popularity among the lower classes. Essential oils are allocated geraniums, due to its bactericidal properties prevent the development of lung disease and improve the metabolism. Our grandmothers knew that the headache must be put in the ear mashed leaf geraniums, and otitis in his ear was applied to the patient as a compress. In geraniums powerful, positive energy. To recuperate after a hard day, it is recommended to sit next to the geraniums. But next to the bed or in a small bedroom, a geranium to put it is not necessary. If long inhale its essential oils, you can head falling ill.
Tradescantia - too good flower, and above all quite common and, moreover, very unpretentious plant. This is a beautiful variegated plant, it tolerates both heat and cold, will grow well in dark rooms, but in the light, it is better to retain variegated leaves. In Tradescantia, there is another very interesting feature: the flower - an indicator of the energy being at home. Where the bad energy, it begins to turn yellow and lose leaves. Relocate spiderwort to another place - and the plant grows luxuriantly again.

It perfectly removes fatigue, relieves the feeling of fear, anxiety, insomnia and loss of strength. Beneficial effect on older people who already do not have the strength. Capable of smooth power adjustment in pregnancy, toxemia, and reduce irritability. And yet this wonderful aromatic plant used in cooking fish and meat dishes.
You can omit a sprig of rosemary in olive oil - it will give him a subtle and refined fragrance. In the summer he would gladly go with you to the cottage and will grow well in open ground. But do not leave rosemary wintered in the area - this is typical of Mediterranean plant will not survive the harsh winter. At home, he prefers to place a lighter and poprohladnee, and moderate watering. Loving the light and the sun Tradescantia clean home atmosphere of envy and ill will.
Do not forget to pour his favorite, supporting the light soil moisture. Beautiful orchids - are plants that absorb your energy. Especially strong is the influence of the night and predawn hours. Orchid is capricious, whimsical, and requires careful maintenance. "Communication" with orchid is especially dangerous for people weak and indecisive.
