Bonzai Positioning in Feng Shui

By Stephanie Lai, Joras

In home décor, the usage of plants and bonzai to beautify living spaces is very normal. Nature goers in particular believe that bonzai can freshen their living environment.However, in feng shui studies, the amount of bonzai placed should not exceed a certain limit and must match the home owner’s five elements.Only then will your family be blessed and misfortunes can be avoided. Let’s look at the requirements!



1. Bonzai should look healthy and pleasant. It should never look droopy or lifeless because in feng shui studies, wood element represents “yang”, which is the most lively element in the five elements. Dry wilted plants will only absorb “yin”and is extremely dire in feng shui studies.


2. In the living area and bedroom, bonzai should be placed according to feng shui positions. Bonzai should face east as east represents the wood element. This will bring health to all family members. Also, the size of bonzai used should match the room to bonzai size ratio.Sharp leaved bonzais should be avoided.


3. Types of bonzai placed at home must be evergreen. For example, Bougainvillea and Rohdea. Bonzais that are hard to manage and wilt easily should be avoided.


4. Big leaved bonzais like Rohdea, Hou Ye, Zhao Chai Cao, Cycas Revoluta, Fu Gui Ye are known to bring good fortune. Cactus and dragon bone on the other hand drive away bad luck.


5. Creepers and weeds are taboos and must be cleared immediately as it will bring misfortune to family members.
