Do not put Feng Shui plant in your bedroom
The Feng Shui plant is normally positioned at the corner of the living room, or in the study room. You should avoid putting the Feng Shui plant in your bedroom, since a plant is considered a Yin energy item based on the theory of Chinese Five Elements of Feng Shui.
Do not put your Feng Shui plant towards the direction of your kitchen
Since the kitchen belongs to the element of fire in the five elements in Feng Shui, the plant will wilt easily.
Position your Feng Shui plant according to your own Chinese Five Elements of Feng Shui
For example, if you belongs to the element of wood, it is advisable for you to place your Feng Shui plant at the east direction of your house.
Do not place a single plant in home
You should try to avoid putting a single plant in your house. This represents the Feng Shui structure of “困”, which is the meaning of “being trapped” in Chinese. Thus, it is not suitable to place a single plant in your house.
Treat your Feng Shui plant regularly
If flowers of your Feng Shui plant wilt, or leaves turn yellow due to the lack of water, you should cut them off in time. A bad condition plant may results in the bad luck of whole family.
Do not remove the red ribbon on the Feng Shui plant
Normally a red ribbon is tied on Feng Shui plants such as Kumquat, Pachira aquatica, Zamioculcas zamiifolia, and Alocasia macrorrhizos. Sometimes you can even find a Chinese word such as “福” (pronouns as “Fu”, mean fortunated) or “发” (pronouns as “Fa”, means prosperous) attached on a Feng Shui plant. These words have auspicious meanings such as get a good career, become prosperous, be more lucky and etc. However, some people may view these items as poor taste and purposely or accidentally remove them. The Feng Shui plant will return to its Yin state once an auspicious item which represents Yang is removed. This results in the lack of Yang energy and growth of Yin energy. As a result, not only their money luck would not improve, tenants of the house would even suffer losses, or many problems could happen.

They may cause skin irritation, rashes and body itchiness.
Avoid poisonous plants
