A Beginner’s Guide to Plants and Crystals
Using Crystals in Your Houseplants – How & Why?
Known for their beauty and beloved for the ancient wisdom that touts crystals as having healing and energy-uplifting properties, crystals have long been used around the world. Pairing crystals and plants is even thought to increase abundance and help with health. This blog is going to give you a few ideas for what to do with your crystals and plants!
Put them in the top of your planters
Yes, you CAN put your crystals in plants to increase vibrations. Just note that dirt and water will eventually decrease the shine of the stones themselves, so keep that in mind when submerging them in soil. Try using clear quartz and aventurine to promote health!
Add beauty to your display
Even if you are not a regular crystal consumer, adding beautiful objects around your staged plants adds a fun aesthetic to your home. This author likes to display raw crystals on her bookshelf and desk for the eye-catching flash they provide.
Repot plants and add crystals
When repotting a plant, you can place a crystal in the bottom of the new planter, cover with soil, and plant as usual. Just remember to clean and sanitize the crystals if moving crystals from plant to plant to minimize any cross-contamination that may occur.
Crystals that pair well with plants:
- Clear quartz and rose quartz – helps to promote growth and healing
- Flourite – pairs well with succulents
- Amethyst – much like quartz, helps to promote growth and healing
- Aventurine – helps to release old things to bring new growth
- Agate/moss agate – brings a connection to the earth and helps to ground
- Moonstone – use it to promote fertility and health
- Tiger’s eye – use it to help with root growth and strength
While nothing can replace good ol’ fashioned proper plant care, crystals can be a fun way to increase the look and health of your plant babes.
