The lucky bamboo originates from the ancient Chinese science of feng shui. Luckybamboo is considered an ornamental plant nowadays. In addition to enhancing the aesthetic appearance of a house, this plant is also believed to be a lucky plant. Even though this plant resemblances a bamboo, it does not fall under the bamboo family. The scientific name of the lucky bamboo is Dracaena Sanderiana. This ornamental plant has even reached the tropical homes of India.
Similar to Indian vastu, China also has its own ancient philosophical science called Feng Shui. Feng Shui has a history of 4000 years. This word implies water and wind. According to Indian vastu shastra, houses and buildings are reconstructed vastu-related limitations are found. But in feng shui, there are solutions for these problems without reconstruction. Feng shui is believed to control the energy flow within a system, thus enhancing the human mind and happiness. Feng shui reduces the negative energy within a home and increases the positive energy. Another important point to be noted is that excess energy in the house will also create problems. This excess energy is removed by a process called clutter clearing. There are many things that improve the positive energy within your abode, as per feng shui. Laughing Buddha figurines, Khmer form of architecture and frogs are used to increase the positive energy flow within a home. The lucky bamboo is one such element.
In the feng shui, it is mentioned that the lucky bamboo reduces the stress of the human mind. The refreshing feeling that these plants give inside the house is not replaceable. Feng Shui tells us that these plants should be allowed to grow inside the house naturally, on its own. No manures or fertilizers are required for its growth. Regardless of their belief, the lucky bamboo influences the mind of people around it in a positive way.
