The Significance of Plants and Trees in Vastu Shastra

Today more and more people understand the importance of Vastu shastra and are trying their level best and seeking the advice of Vastu experts for making their homes and work places vastu compliant.

It should be noted that Vastu Shastra is not just limited to the placement of the rooms. But even the placement of plants and trees can go a long way in making the home vastu compliant.

The basic idea is to generate lots of positive energy and proper placement of plants and trees can help in achieving this.

The Placement of Flowering Plants and Small Plants

It is good to have flowering plants especially plants like rose, jasmine, mogra, parijat etc as they are known to generate lots of positivity. The placement of these plants has to be in the southwest portion of the house.

You can also have money plants for good luck and good fortune. Since it has been mentioned here that you can have roses, that does not mean any thorny plants are allowed. One must remember that only roses generate positive energy.

All the other thorny plants generate negativity. Therefore except rose no other thorny plants should be planted. The holy basil should be planted in the North, east or northeast corner of the house. You can have the holy basil in the front or the back of the house. This plant is highly auspicious.

The Placement of Small, Medium and Big Trees

Never plant any tree in north northeast corner. Small trees should be in the north and east while big trees should be in the south and the west. Trees should not be planted at the entrance of the house. Remember that sacred trees like banyan and peepal trees should not be planted in the house.

Big Plants and Tree


They should be planted only in sacred places. Any tree that gives out a milky extract should not be planted in the house as affects the health of family members. It is good to plant trees like coconut, neem, mango, amla, jackfruit etc.

The Placement of Creepers and Stone Sculptures

How and where you grow creepers also matters. It is good to have creepers in the garden or at the entrance. But you should never have creepers on the compound wall. Creepers must have support of their own. The stone sculptures or a rock garden should be placed in the southwest corner

Thus as we can see if you want your home and surroundings to be in line with Vastu compatibility, in that case, you also need to make sure that the plants and trees that you are planting also comply with the rules of vastu.

The months when the plants and trees are planted are also of significance. Also, any plant or tree should first be planted in a clay pot and then it should be planted in the ground. Take care of these basic facts about trees and plants before planting them in your homes.
