Is Having Plants In Your Bedroom 'Bad' Feng Shui?

Laura Cerrano

Question: I am in the process of Feng Shui-ing my NYC apartment and I read putting plants in the bedroom is bad. Then in a video, I hear plants are good Feng Shui. What would you suggest? 

If you would like to know which plants are most ideal in the bedroom, a study by NASA listed English ivy as the number one air-filtering houseplant. It has an unmatched ability to absorb formaldehyde (a known neurotoxin). It’s incredibly easy to grow and it’s adaptable. You could hang it from the ceiling or arrange it as a floor plant. 

Another great plant to place inside your bedroom is the Perennial Snake plant. It doesn't require much light or water to thrive.  What’s most impressive about it is that it absorbs carbon dioxide and releases oxygen during evening hours.

Looking at plants from a Feng Shui perspective, they are also referred to as 'activation cures.' This meaning, the plants characteristics encourages growth and expansion. In the bedroom, we are seeking more Yin energy (stillness). If you would like to negotiate the Feng Shui principles, then add just one plant and keep it at a good distance from your bed.
