Plants are amazing species, there's no doubt it—is there anything they can't do? They have the power to drive away household pests, purify the airput you in a cheerful mood and even bring positive vibrations into your humble abode. 

In Feng Shui, it is believed that the best living spaces are the ones with the most peaceful and free-flowing energy. When it is blocked by an opposing element, you tend to feel down and uninspired, too. Luckily, there are plants that can keep the bad juju away. To maintain a happy and vibrant home, make sure to have at least one of these green wonders on your windowsill: 

Orchid

Aside from attracting positive energy and breathing lively energy into tired spaces, orchids are also said to be great mood boosters because of its sweet scent.
