1. Rubber Tree
Part of the fig family, rubber plants have round, shiny green leaves that symbolize wealth and abundance. Rubber trees thrive in medium to indirect light, make great indoor plants and also promote good feng shui because they purify the air and remove negative energy from a room. Feng Shui experts say that the best place to put a rubber tree is in the southeast part of your living room.
2. Money Tree
Just like the rubber tree, the money tree plant draws prosperity and fortune to a home. Money trees are grown in a variety of different ways. Some come in braided trunks with lush green leaves. There are some with large trunks and variegated leaves and others are grown in smaller pots so they can stay mini money trees (bonsai). Although money trees are grown outdoors, they can also thrive in low light areas so you can keep them indoors too. The money tree is a nice hassle-free plant for beginner plant parents.
Eucalyptus is known for its fresh minty scent, and symbolizes cleansing and new beginnings.
