Feng shui interprets round leaves of rubber plants as symbols of money and prosperity. The plants are said to attract abundance, good luck, and money.
Zones 10 and 11 are ideal for growing rubber plants outdoors. Zone 9 plants may be grown outdoors if they are well mulched during winter. Ficus elastica can be grown indoors in hardiness zones outside of this region.
The Sanseviera plant is also known as snake plant or mother-in-law’s tongue.
The plant grows between 2 to 4 feet tall and has long, green and yellow stripes on its leaves. It seems to thrive with minimal care but is vulnerable to damage from overwatering.

Shamrock plant – one of the most popular lucky plants
Oxalis, sometimes known as false shamrocks, does belong to the shamrock family and has the traditional shamrock shaped leaves.
According to feng shui, all plants shaped like shamrocks are lucky. Shamrocks are related to Ireland. Plants with three leaves are regarded as lucky plants in Irish mythology since the number three is considered to be very lucky.
An exception whose leaves have three leaves is poison ivy! In this case, it is “let them be three leaves”.”
Shamrocks are supposed to represent faith, hope, and love. A fourth leaf on your plant is considered lucky. Saint Patrick saw the plant as embodying the Holy Trinity.
The four-leaf clover is not a common variety of the regular clover, so it is considered lucky by many people.
Oxalis is a delicate plant that can survive outdoors in some cooler locations. It has a hardiness zone of 6 and above. Many of my oxalis plants grow indoors during St. Patrick’s day, as well as outdoors in semi shady locations in my garden.
