Vaastu, also known as Vaastu shastra, is essentially a system of placement that enables one to take full advantage of all the panchabhutas, or five elements (space, air, fire, water, and earth), as well as the magnetic fields that encircle the planet. The scientific application of the elements can provide an environment that is perfectly balanced, ensuring good health, wealth, and prosperity.
These days, more people are aware of and keen on the Vaastu Shastra idea. The tradition’s advantages of prosperity and happiness make it more appealing. Vaastu focuses on attracting beneficial cosmic energy into the home and maximising success in life.
The place that you are living in or the one that you are planning to live in can harness the benefits of solar energy, lunar energy, and cosmic forces through Vaastu Shastra. While it is not possible to implement all the rules of Vaastu Shastra, it is beneficial to maintain them as much as possible.
Vaastu principles are mainly applicable to individual residential houses, industries, educational institutions, commercial complexes, theatres, hospitals, churches, etc.

So, choose these indoor plants, which not only bring greenery and life but also draw success, abundance, and positivity while promoting good health.
- The two-layer bamboo plant for Vaastu
The place is at your work desk for removing stress and better concentration. A two-layer plant mud pot can be well placed in the East or South-East to have better social connections and attract positive collaborations for work and business alike.
Avoid keeping it in the bathroom. If you still have to, then use a single-layer water jar, which is good for removing toxicity.

At the front door, draw Lakshmi and keep a positive outlook each time you enter or leave the house. For the sake of the plant’s health, make sure to keep it away from any appliances like inverters, TVs, the tops of refrigerators, etc.
Do not keep it in the bathroom. The South, West, and North-West are good directions for gains, results, and luck enhancement.
- Grow your resources with the money plant.
The best way to handle it is to cut it off from someone else’s plant and put it in a glass jar with water. That is equivalent to theft! The best strategy is to purchase a money plant in a mudded pot from a nursery and place it in the west or WNW for success and gains in money.
The more it grows, the larger your savings will become. Cut the long stems and place them in multiple glass jars in different locations, such as the work or study desk, the bathroom window, near the AC window, or the kitchen.
When you want to keep it in the north at precisely zero degrees, use a blue-coloured jar.
