In Vietnamese culture and life, the khé tree is associated with benevolence, homeland, and the reward of being kind when eating. The ancient legend of a bird eating khé and returning gold, and the folk song of the homeland, “Sweet Bunch of Khé,” have deeply imprinted in the minds of the Vietnamese people.
In feng shui belief, many people think that when buying or renting a house, if they see a khé tree inside, it signifies good luck and fortune.
Therefore, recently many people have been planting khé trees for landscaping to create a feng shui atmosphere for their homes.
The khé tree is easy to grow, its leaves are not easily shed, its purple flowers are charming, and its clusters of ripe fruits are beautifully golden. Therefore, the khé tree symbolizes wealth, abundance, a large family with harmony and happiness. The khé tree is also resistant to pests and diseases, making it easy to grow and take care of.
However, to ensure the feng shui aspect of growing khé trees and bring wealth and good luck, you need to pay attention to the following:
1 important taboo when planting khé trees
When planting khé trees, to bring wealth, you need to consider important feng shui factors. The khé tree can grow into a tall tree, so when planting khé, you need to remember the planting location. If the khé tree is planted in the ground, in front of the house, it should not block the entrance because when the khé tree grows tall, it obstructs the flow of energy into the house, blocking the path of the god of wealth. At that time, cutting it down would be difficult because it would drain the fortune. Therefore, plant the khé tree in a location that does not obstruct the path and plant it in a convenient manner. When the khé tree has many leaves covering the gate, it needs to be pruned neatly to not affect the main entrance of the house. If you want to grow a large khé tree, move it to the back of the house, the bigger the khé tree, the more fortune.
2 things to do when planting khé to ensure flowers and fruits blossom, welcoming more wealth
Remember to lime the base every year to prevent pests: Liming is a technique to help the tree resist pests and diseases. Every year in the dry season, lime the base of the khé tree to ensure that the tree is not affected by pests, and it can develop well, helping the tree bloom and bear fruits better. The more the khé tree bears fruit, the more wealth it brings.
Remember to provide enough water and light: Khé trees do not require complicated care. If the tree is planted in the ground with deep roots, there is rarely a need for watering. But if the tree is planted in a pot, pay attention to watering. The khé tree prefers moderate light, it cannot tolerate intense sunlight but cannot endure complete shade either. Therefore, ensure that the tree receives enough light to have blossoms and fruits, bringing more wealth to the homeowners.
Which fate is khé suitable for?
The khé tree has a brown trunk and green leaves, and when the fruits ripen, they are bright yellow. Therefore, the khé tree is suitable for people with Earth and Fire fates. Therefore, people with these fates will be very supported in luck and wealth when growing khé.
Choosing between sour and sweet khé is more feng shui-appropriate
The khé tree currently has both sour and sweet varieties, so choosing either tree does not affect the feng shui. The sour khé tree leaves and fruits are widely used in cooking and medicine. Khé leaves help treat acne, and they have a cooling effect. The sweet khé tree bears larger and thicker fruits. If you only want to plant a small khé tree for landscaping in a pot, you can choose the sweet khé tree because it will bear larger fruits. If you want to use khé leaves and fruits for cooking, choose the sour khé tree.
Khé can be used as medicine and food
Khé leaves are believed to be rich in vitamins, minerals, and lycopene, which help improve the skin and effectively prevent prostate disease. Khé fruits can be used as a dessert or preserved, cooked in soups, or dried for fish and shrimp dishes.
