Traditionally, Lunar New Year is a time to celebrate with loved ones! However, in a year where it may be challenging to gather with family and friends, you might consider decorating your home with plants and flowers that are considered lucky symbols. So without further ado, here are six of the most popular lucky plants for the Year of the Tiger!
Lilly: Who wouldn't want a little piece of heaven in their home? With the Peace Lily, you can enjoy all the benefits of this sacred plant, from good fortune and relaxation to reduced stress levels. Lily is easy to care for and thrives in filtered light or light partial shade. She’s also great for removing negative energy from your space. So why not add one to your home today?
Bucky: Money money money, isn’t funny! Bring some abundance and wealth into your life with Bucky the Money Tree! These easy-to-grow money plants are said to bring good fortune and prosperity, and their leaves resemble dollar bills for an extra bit of symbolism. Place your Money Tree in a spot where you will see it every day to remind you of your goals and aspirations, and be sure to water it regularly and fertilize it once a month for best results.
Wendy: When it comes to lucky plants, the Jade Plant reigns supreme. This hardy succulent is believed to bring good health and wealth to its owners during Chinese New Year, making it a popular choice for new homeowners or as a hostess gift. While the Jade Plant is easy to care for, there are a few basic tips you need to follow in order for it to thrive. Make sure your Jade Plant has plenty of indirect sunlight and water it regularly, but be careful not to over-water it! Additionally, try not to move your plant around too much - this can stress Wendy out and cause her to lose her leaves.
Penny: Bring the luck of the Lunar New Year into your home with the Pancake Plant! This green amigo is a popular choice for many reasons. Not only is it known to attract fertility and abundance, but it’s also very low maintenance - making Penny a great gift for plant care newbies! Just water her thoroughly and wait for the soil to dry out before watering again.
Li Xiu: No surprise here! Li Xiu the Calamondin Tree is one of our best sellers during this time of year. These citrus trees are traditional symbols of good fortune, and with our simple care guide, you can enjoy fresh oranges all winter long. Isn't that a great way to get Vitamin C during the cold season?
