Before, I delve more into what plants you should consider buying, let me tell you more about Feng Shui:
Feng Shui literally translates into Wind and Water. It’s a traditional practice originated in ancient China with the main objective of using energy forces to harmonize individuals within their surrounding environments. The key aspect of Feng Shui is to reach balance between Yin and Yang, which represent two natural and complementary, yet contradictory forces. Yin is the receptive force, while Yang is the active one.
