Houseplants are always an ideal gift. They are more practical than ordinary bouquets and can decorate any interior. However, few people know that some flowers have a symbolic meaning.

Since ancient times, plants have been endowed with unique qualities: some flowers are believed to bring peace and harmony to the house, while others are believed to protect against disease and become a real amulet for the family.

Flower of love and peace

Spathiphyllum symbolizes love and peace. According to beliefs, this plant brings peace, comfort and family harmony to the house. Spathiphylums are quite unpretentious, do not like excessive watering and feel great in slightly dry soil. The plant will become a decoration of the interior thanks to the delicate white flowers and glossy dark green leaves. Spathiphyllum grows up to a meter high and feels better in bright indirect light.

Good luck flower

If you want to wish someone success or congratulate them on a significant event at work, present oxalis, the flower of good luck. Plants with heart-shaped triangular leaves of different shades of green or dark purple color will harmoniously fit into the interior. Oxalis has tiny pink or white flowers. The plant is quite fragile, growing to about 30 cm in height. Because of the high ascorbic acid content, oxalis is also called soursop.

Symbol of money and prosperity

Pilea symbolizes prosperity. It is also called a coin plant or Chinese money tree. The plant is mostly considered the personification of financial stability, material prosperity and wealth. Indeed, the thin stems and rounded leaves resemble peculiar coins. Since ancient times, superstitious people have buried a leaf and a few coins in the ground. It was believed that such a ritual could attract abundance to the house.

Flower of gratitude

Marantha is associated with gratitude. People call it a "prayer plant" because the leaves are folded every night, resembling hands folded in prayer. Marantha symbolizes peace, tranquility, gratitude and care. It is usually given as a gift to mentors: teachers, leaders and people who are treated with respect. Marantas grow better in low to medium light. Water them when the top layer of soil is completely dry. Plants grow up to 30 cm in height.

Symbol of protection, health and healing

Healing and protection are personified by aloe vera. This plant has been used for medicinal purposes for thousands of years. Aloe vera has a healing clear gel in its composition, so it is added to medicines to treat skin conditions. Aloe vera is a very easy plant to grow. It does not need frequent watering and grows quickly in bright sunlight.
