Greetings to all who share the wisdom of feng shui!
Depending on your climate zone, September can bring the first frost. That’s when your house plants want to move indoors.
Those lush potted plants that have been enjoying outdoor air on your patio or garden, rejuvenating their photo synthesis, are now ready to move inside. Your plants are living creatures and will thank you for providing a happy transition. They are moving from the vast outdoors to the confined space of the indoors. Put them near a window at first, so they can adjust gradually to the different light.
Your plants are like children. They will thrive with loving care in a nurturing environment. Once they have adjusted to indoor living, you can start thinking about their feng shui positions. We will cover that topic in our next newsletter. So for the time being, we still voice our concerns about the transition period.
A good hosing down, spraying or even suds can eliminate any bugs, scale or other parasites they might have picked up outside. Maybe they have grown a bit unruly and need to be trimmed to fit into their designated space. If your plants suffer from lack of light, they might be helped along with a plant light that will enhance growth and health.
Only after they have gone through the transition period, they might benefit from a gentle dose of plant food. Let them deal with one change at a time and don’t try to force them. If your indoor climate is very dry, you plants might enjoy occasional misting.
During a period of Indian summer with plenty of sunshine or some gentle rain, your plant children might enjoy a daytrip to the outside, just for a quick replenish of chlorophyll before winter sets in.
We look forward to returning with feng shui recommendations for placing your plant children into positions where they might benefit your overall or specific feng shui wishes. As you are moving them indoors, you might want to take a look and ask yourself whether you are really fond of each of your plant children to the point of caring for it all winter long. Otherwise, perhaps now is the time to find a new home for those that do not fit your indoor scheme.
Air is part of our invisible qi that we should consciously be aware of. Airing out at least once a day with open windows will nurture you, your plants and your pets.
Your Plants Will Thank You Every Day
