Best Feng Shui Plant for Strength and Wealth Ficus Elastica


Feng shui energy and symbolism of plants can help you bring in activated energies and help as simple feng shui cures to activate life sectors. Choice of correct plants will help you in a simple way to bring in the beautiful feng shui energy to your garden.
Rubber Plant Ficus Elastica
With the strength of rubber plant  , it looks tough and has been used for many purposes, so each part of the plant is useful. Rubber plants are considered symbols of strength and stability. A very good feng shui plant to bring energy of stability and strength when planted in the garden or home.
When planting rubber plant remember to have a bigger larger pot as the roots of this grow fast and the plant may need space as also the leaves are quite broad , shiny, large and oval shaped.
The leaves of rubber plant are attractive dark green and shiny and when you keep them clean they are quiet glossy and look attractive. The stem of Rubber plant is reddish brown and the dark green leaves are soothing to heart chakra and brings in grounding Earth energy.

The scientific name of Rubber plant is Ficus elastica. Commonly called as he rubber fig, rubber bush, rubber tree, or Indian Rubber bush. The Rubber plant can grow quite tall as a full fledged tree and produces hanging roots . Each such portion with roots can be transplanted to form a new rubber tree.

When we cut the stem or pluck a leaf a milky white sticky liquid oozes out.Latex, it is best to wear gloves while trimming the plant, as the liquid can produce a rash and allergy to skin.
I love how the new leaves come up. you see a reddish maroon curled portion coming up from tip of the stem and this unfurls and the covering drops off leaving a green leaf inside that grows large. This does develop small fig , green fruits but we have not seen in our container plants.
Best easy growing ornamental plant the Rubber plant can grow in dark areas and even are happy inside homes. 
The symbolism in Feng Shui is this plant can be added to your east sector for good health and healing all relationships. It also helps keep happiness and understanding in joint families and with elders bringing  in health luck.
