From the beginning of civilized societies plants have a huge significance, not only they produce oxygen, remove harmful substances from the air, interestingly some plants are known as luck boosters, keeping them indoors or outdoors helps to bring prosperity in life.

Ancient civilizations were able to understand the ecologic balance better, in context to ancient Indian tradition plants and tree are deeply integrated with religion as its proclaimed “by planting any type of tree, useful for fruits and flowers, a person gets a reward of thousand cows adorned with jewels, while cutting a green tree is an unforgiving offense.”

If we refer Islamic litt., its encouraged to plant trees and warned about cutting them down for instance – ‘Whoever plants a tree and patiently maintains it and tends to it until its fruition, every single fruit consumed from that tree is regarded by Allah as charity,’ (Kanz al-Ummal, no. 9081).

Holy Bible says “God made the trees with seed-bearing fruit, he gave us the possibility to increase their number by planting the seeds, we needed to learn to do this to continue receiving their benefits.” (Genesis 1:29-30), there are a number of trees and herbs mentioned in the Bible as precious gift of god to grow and spread like, plam trees, juniper, cypress, acacia, spirale, lavender, rosemery, garlic, dill, almond, aloe etc.

Feng Shui emphasizes on plating the plants which are useful for environment, Feng Shui makes it clear “Any plant believed to purify the air is an excellent choice to be kept near or in the houses, choose flowering plants with round or smooth-edged leaves or canopy and leaves that are clustered, higher number of leaves is more better. Arrange the plants in pairs to keep the balance of yin and yang. Along with having plants its equally important to take the responsibility of their care, keep them healthy and clean so that those can invite positive flow of chi.”
