- Round, floppy leaves are more tend to peace and calm.
- Tall plants represent tree energy and need to go in the middle left, or Family sector of the home. Since tree uproots earth, avoid large, tall, woody plants in the middle of rooms.
- Avoid dry flowers. Silk is better than dried, but real is best.
- Plants in multiples of three can counteract disharmony in relationships, except in the bedroom.
- Plants are best in the East and Southeast.
- In the bathroom, use one tall woody plant to help drain the excess Water element, but don’t overdo plants here.
- Few, if any plants, should go in the bedroom. Yin, floppy plants are okay, but cut flowers are best.

As with any kind of garden, success usually starts with the soil. Most vegetables do best in moist, well-drained soil that’s rich in organic matter (such as compost or peat moss).
If you don’t have a good soil for vegetables, you can also buy ready to use nutrient rich soil.
In general use a soil-based compost placed over a generous layer of drainage material such as earthenware crocks, pebbles or gravel. Water and feed regularly, especially while plants are bearing flowers and fruit, when a high-potash fertilizer is recommended.
