Is bamboo in and around the house a good or bad energy?

Bamboo represents prosperity, longevity and good fortune, and makes a wonderful nature wall. It’s easy to enjoy the grace, peace, and beauty that Bamboo brings to our lives.

Bamboo is considered a WOOD element. The WOOD element in a garden, ranging from plants, trees and flowers, cannot affect you in any negative way, in fact you can never over-improve the land.

HOWEVER, the opposite is true of the interior environment. Too much of the WOOD element can be “very” difficult on one’s health. It’s especially hard on Water, Metal and Earth element people.

Most homes and offices are over dominant in the ‘wood’ element due to wood cabinets, cupboards, desks, dressers, tables, headboards and other misc. furnishings. Therefore, it’s important to think twice before adding wood flooring.
