Are Dried Flowers Bad Feng Shui?

Dried flowers have become as popular as fresh flowers in the decorative world, and dried flower decorations and dried flower arrangements are gracing the lobbies of hotels, living rooms, and other spaces just as much as fresh flowers. Many interior decorators prefer using dried flower arrangements because of their longevity and natural look. Though these arrangements look classy and avante-garde there is bad news for all those who believe in Feng Shui.

Just like how dried flower arrangements are catching on and becoming trendy, Feng Shui is also becoming popular, and more and more people want to arrange their homes and spaces in a way they can attract good energy that will bring them luck, happiness, abundance, good health, and good fortune. According to Feng Shui, it is bad to keep dead plants and flowers inside the home or office since these flowers are already dead or in the process of decay. According to Feng Shui, any object in your home or office that reminds you of death or decay is not good for the home. To them, no matter how beautiful these dried flowers look, they are a symbol of death.

When dried, these plants and flowers are dead in terms of ‘chi’. Since these dried plants and flowers have no life and vitality, it is believed that they will drain all the good energy from the room. Many times, dried flowers and flower arrangements using dried flowers are used in homes and offices in spaces where there is no natural light because these dried flowers thrive without sunlight also. 

Real plants do not grow without light, and it is then these dried flowers are used for decorations and flower arrangements to add to the visual appeal of your home décor or office. As per Feng Shui rules these dead or dried flowers release dead energy into the air making the room negative. A lack of positive ‘chi’ can cause an adverse effect on your health. 

Chi in Feng Shui means the energy in your room, and having strong chi inside your home is a sign of having good energy in your home. That is the reason why they say having dried flowers in the home which are dead flowers can influence the positive vibes of your living space. You must have thought dried flowers are easy to maintain, and look elegant and trendy, so they can be kept in your home. Refrain from using them in your home and office spaces because as per Feng Shui, they are not going to do you any good at all.

Just like dried flowers, plastic or artificial flowers are also said to have dead energy in Feng Shui. You might be trying to get an elegant and chic space by doing it up with dried flowers, and will get a space that is filled with bad vibes instead. 

Now that you know dried flowers are not good for your home according to Feng Shui, let us have a look at some of the freshly cut flowers that can bring you good luck, abundance, good health, and prosperity. They are:


Dianthus is also known as the ‘Flower of the Gods’ in Feng Shui, and they represent loyalty and love. Having them at home is better than having a bunch of dried or artificial flowers.
