A Feng Shui Perspective on Dried Flowers and Plants

In recent times, there has been literatures and sources advocating the benefits and advantage of dried flowers and plants.

One obvious advantages are economic and convenience and more sustainable than fresh flowers: “Don’t Waste Your Money on Fresh Flowers—Buy Dried Flowers Instead”.

One webpage suggest the use of a few branches out of the backyard as centerpieces for your next dinner party or leave a bundle of eucalyptus by the front door to welcome your guests with the refreshing scent while another author gives you 7 dried flowers decor ideas. Backed by science, an Entomologist articulate that Dried flowers and other plant materials are a popular way to decorate the home or office. Unfortunately, natural plant products attracts and become the habitat or the food for various insects and pests. While in a Feng Shui (The Spruce) discusses the challenge with a dried flower is to Keep its Energy Fresh and Keeping it Special.

All living organisms go through a nature process of birth, growth, death, entomb and decay process. A plant or flower that is dead and dried no longer have any life force or Yang Energy (陽氣) and given time, Yin Energy (陰氣) will accumulate, that’s why pest are attracted to it. When Yin Energy takes over, the Yin aspect will start to absorb Yang energy in order to balance itself, this leads to a decline in Vibrant Energy or Yang Energy (陽氣) in the property or household.

A plant or flower that is dead also symbolizes Death Door ( 死門), Sickness Star (天芮), Tomb and Decay (墓絕) phrase. And, wouldn’t the idea of a plant or flower that is dead resemblance a corpse (僵尸), perhaps merely less obnoxious in the look and feel when compared against a corpse (僵尸).
