Bonsai plants: Beautiful and classy, but unfortunately bonsais are apparently not the plants that one should keep at home. The miniature trees can damage one's prosperity, and block the progress of inhabitants in the house; therefore it's best to avoid keeping them at home, says Vastu Shastra.
Cotton plants: Cotton plants, especially silky cotton plants, are definitely pretty to look at but if placed indoors, they are believed to bring bad luck. So avoid these.
Tamarind plants: Tamarind plants should not be planted in one's garden, according to Vastu Shastra. They are known to attract negativity, can adversely impact people's peace of mind and therefore should not be placed anywhere near one's house.
Mehendi plants: Evil spirits are believed to exist in Myrtle or Mehendi plants! So while you might love henna on your palms and use them for haircare, it's advisable not to keep these plants in the home. The strong smell is also known to disturb one's calm state of mind.
Not just these indoor plants, flowers also affect a home's energy levels. Parduman Suri says, "Dead flowers should not be stored indoors. These lifeless flowers and plants interrupt the energy flow in the surroundings and hurt the energy balance in the home. Furthermore, some flowers, such as carnations, should never be kept inside the home. They are believed to bring bad fortune. You can, however, plant carnations in your garden."
