The Meaning of Poinsettia

Poinsettias are special plants that originated from Mexico. Poinsettias have red leaves that are often mistaken for flowers. In Western folklore, poinsettias are associated with the Christmas story. A poor boy who had no gift for his friend on Christmas plucked a plant by the roadside, and when he arrived, the plant bloomed with red flowers. Since then, poinsettias have been considered as a symbol of luck and are essential during Christmas celebrations. Poinsettias are decorated in hallways, churches, on Christmas trees, on wreaths, and more.

Poinsettia flowers are associated with the story of luck, achievement, and glory

In Eastern folklore, poinsettias are associated with a poor student who encountered a plant while taking an exam. He brought the plant with him, and later, when he passed the exam, the plant bloomed with red flowers. That’s why it is named poinsettia, meaning achievement and glory.

According to folklore, poinsettias bring good luck and prosperity. Because of the beautiful name, many people choose to grow poinsettias in their homes and give them as lucky gifts, wishing for achievement and success.

However, from a Feng Shui perspective, poinsettias are not entirely lucky plants. This is because poinsettias are toxic. Therefore, many people advise against planting or giving poinsettias as gifts because they can be harmful if ingested by children.

Poinsettias prefer sunny places for better growth

Should you plant poinsettias indoors?

Poinsettias have a beautiful name and color, but as mentioned earlier, they are toxic plants, so they belong to the category of plants that need to be considered from a Feng Shui perspective.

Poinsettias originate from Mexico and thrive in sunny places. Therefore, it is not recommended to grow poinsettias indoors. You should plant poinsettias on balconies, yards, and gardens where the plants can get enough sunlight and grow better. Potted poinsettias can be used for decoration in the living room window, but you should regularly take them outside to receive light and sunshine. Otherwise, the plants may turn black, wither, and lose their vibrancy.

When there are young children in the family, it is important to avoid letting them pluck the leaves, flowers, or break the branches of poinsettias because the sap of the plant can cause digestive irritation leading to vomiting and diarrhea if not handled with caution.

Poinsettias come in many colors for you to choose from

Are poinsettias suitable for people with a specific element?

Poinsettias come in various colors such as red, white, yellow, pink, etc. According to Feng Shui beliefs, people born in the Year of the Horse (Ngọ) will have the best Feng Shui luck if they plant poinsettias. Poinsettias are also suitable for people with the Fire and Wood elements. Therefore, those born in the Year of the Horse and belong to the Fire element, such as those born in 1978, are extremely lucky to plant poinsettias as a Feng Shui plant. These people can grow poinsettias to resolve setbacks in their work and lives, mitigate and restrain their shortcomings, and help them advance smoothly in their careers and lives.

People with the Fire and Wood elements, such as those born in the Year of the Horse (Ngọ), are advised to place poinsettias on their desks, in front of their houses, or on their balconies to bring about prosperity, smooth work, promotion, and abundant wealth. However, it is important to regularly take the poinsettias outside to receive sunlight for their healthy growth.
