Money Plant – The Ultimate Symbol of Prosperity


Crassula ovata commonly known as Jade Plant, Money Plant, Friendship Tree or Lucky Plant, is a succulent plant native to South Africa, and is one of the most popular houseplants grown worldwide.

Money Plant is a popular good luck charm in Asia thought to activate financial energies. This beautiful succulent has vibrant green leaves symbolic of growth and renewal, closely resembling jade coins, symbolic of wealth and prosperity.

Crassula ovata is a traditional gift for businesses and many business owners place a Money Plant near the entrance of their restaurants or shops, or in a southeast location to bring prosperity and success. During the Chinese New Year celebrations, Money Plants are set on top of stock and investment certificates so they will increase in value during the coming year.

According to Feng Shui practices, it encourages placing Money Plants in east locations for family harmony, health, initiation of projects, scholarly pursuits; in southeast locations for wealth luck; in west locations for creativity or children luck; and in northwest locations for the luck of mentors, teachers and helpful people.
