Not familiar with Lunar New Year? Let’s shed some light on the basics:
This holiday is based on the lunar calendar (the cycles of the moon)
The moon is very powerful - it controls ocean tides, plant growth, and even human behavior, so Lunar New Year celebrations are meant to acknowledge these relationships
Festivities begin when the first new moon occurs (anywhere from end of January to mid-February) and they come to a close with the first full moon (15 days later)
A new moon signifies new beginnings/the opportunity to move forward with a clean slate - the full moon that follows (15 days later) signifies the completion of one complete moon cycle
During this time, feasts, fireworks, and a variety of special ceremonies/festivals are enjoyed
It's highly celebrated in Asia and many other parts of the world. It is seen as an opportunity to spend time with family and honor your ancestors
For 2018, the first new moon that will kick off the Lunar New Year occurs on Friday, February 16th
Depending on location and culture, celebrations can look vastly different as various traditions and beliefs are honored. What we do know for sure is that the lunar calendar is also often referred to as the agricultural calendar - how suiting? Plant people know what’s up ;)
Increasing your juju.
We all chase positive vibes, good karma, and success in our lives. Can all of this be achieved by acquiring a plant? Who knows! But, the Money Tree is the most popular plant used as a Feng Shui cure. If put in the money area of your home, it is said to increase good fortune and attract wealth energy!
We’ve learned by now that money doesn’t grow on trees, but if something this luscious and lovely could help you prosper even a little bit, why not give it a go? Standing at 4ft tall with canopy-like leaves, this Large Braided Money Tree can liven up any home or office.
Caring for these greens.
The Money Tree likes bright light, but it’s best to keep it out of the direct sun
It can happily tolerate medium-brightness areas if needed, but may not grow as fast in this environment
The Money Tree is a tropical plant that loves humidity
Water once a week (or once the top two inches of the soil feels dry to the touch)
We are less than a week away from the commencement of the Lunar New Year, so why not kick it off with some new growth? Get (or gift) a Money Tree!
Best of luck ;)
