8 Lucky Plants For Your Waterloo Region Home

Is it true that there are lucky plants? Because many people associate good fortune with money, many so-called lucky indoor plants have roundish leaves that resemble coins. Do they have the ability to offer you prosperity? Of course, that notion is simply superstition (we think) but it's a fun idea.

Indoor greenery, on the other hand, has been shown to boost the health and happiness of those who live there. That may theoretically provide those individuals with enough energy to create their own luck. At the very least, it provides them with an excuse to expand their plant collection. And, because green is a lucky hue, practically all plants must be lucky!

Plants can also be a great home staging tool. While you should not go overboard - the jungle look is not one that would appeal o the wide buyer demographic you'll be hoping for - healthy plants are an excellent way to add neutral visual interest. And if we are wrong about the validity of the idea of lucky plants, they might help you sell your Waterloo Region home faster, too...😉

Chinese Money Plant

This lucky plant has leaves that are almost surreal in their roundness. Despite the fact that its coin-shaped leaves seem unlikely to earn you money, Chinese Money Plants are so gorgeous and easy to care for that you won't mind. You can also "win friends and influence people" by taking cuttings from a lucky money plant and passing them on as gifts.

Desert Rose

The plumpness of the desert rose's bulging trunk indicates financial abundance in feng shui, making it a lucky plant. Furthermore, the plant produces stunning trumpet-shaped blooms and is gorgeous to behold when in full bloom.

Because this succulent species accumulates moisture in its huge "belly," if it is overwatered, the plant will decay, demonstrating that abundance isn't always a good thing! On the plus side, if you often forget to water houseplants, this pretty plant won't suffer too much as a result of that oversight.

Jade Plant

Because of its link with the "blessed" stone of the same name, the jade plant may have obtained some of its reputation as a lucky plant. But, like many lucky plants, the tree-like species has roundish leaves—succulent leaves in this case. It's also simple to look after, accepting irregular watering and still remaining staying healthy, ensuring that your good fortune doesn't dry up.


The heady perfume of jasmine lures people in for a closer look, and the jasmine plant's lucky flowers—usually white and star-shaped—are said to attract love and money. Many people also suggest adding them to your bedroom to cleanse the air and improve your sleep quality.

Depending on the species, jasmine plant care can range from simple to difficult, so choose for the easiest varieties to grow for the best results (in blooms, that is, not beaus or bucks).

Lucky Bamboo

This feng shui staple lucky plant isn’t really a bamboo—which is associated with strength rather than luck in some cultures—but cane cuttings of a type of Dracaena, or “corn plant.” Apparently its resemblance to bamboo is enough to make it lucky, though. It’s sometimes sold growing in water rather than soil, and the type of good fortune it might bring you depends on how many stalks—rather than stocks—you buy.

Lucky Bean Plant

Probably deriving its “charmed” status from an association with the lucky beans from “Jack and the Beanstalk,” this plant grows from a large green seed lying atop the soil and nurtures the seedling with nutrients throughout its youth.

The plant and its polished pinnate foliage can reach a height of 6 feet when grown in a container, but don’t expect it to grow tall enough to reach any golden egg-laying geese!

Peace Lilly

Touted as a houseplant that improves indoor air quality, some claim that peace lilies clear air of negative energy and toxins, leaving a home, well, peaceful! Fortunately, peace lily care isn’t a fuss as it can tolerate fairly low light, though underwatering will cause it to yellow.

Ti Plant

Ti plants are commonly grown outside the doors of indigenous Pacific islanders to confer blessings on everyone who enter. Gardeners in colder climes like ours, on the other hand, should cultivate their ti plant inside. With its strappy leaves, the plant can be completely green or streaked with tropical sunset colors like red, orange, or pink.
