Different plants have different meanings but in general they represent and symbolise growth. That’s why having them on your desk means you’re progressing at work and doing well. Jade plant, silver crown or a money plant work the best, but pick something you can keep alive.
Crystal or Stones
Crystals are said to be able to absorb bad energy and purify the environment. Clear quartz, rose quartz and jade are said to be the best for this task. Jewellery works just as well.
Mirros are said to reflect chi (or energy) throughout the area and encourages introspection. Feng Shui experts believe that if you’re sitting with your back facing the office door, make sure you have a mirror to reflect chi back into your office and most importantly, to you.
Water symbolises balance, flower energy and wealth. But if you don’t have space for a water fixture in your office, a painting or a photo of a large body of water such as a river or a waterfall can also work to symbolise energy and creativity.

Wood symbolises creativity, strength, growth and brings luck and money. It’s best to put photos of your family members in wood frames to help maintain and establish a good, solid relatiopnship with them.
Lamps or light fixtures energises your name and improves your reputation. Light can also be a source of creativity so you’ll always be inspired.
