1. Hawaiian Ti

This foliage plant comes in many vibrant colors. Some early Polynesians believed it had mystical powers so growing one in your home is said to bring good fortune to the dweller. If you find one with two stalks, it is said that this plant can attract love as well.

3. Snake Plant

Commonly known as the mother-in-law's tongue, it is said to be a good luck plant because of its ability to absorb formaldehyde and benzene in the air. It can also retain natural humidity when grouped with other houseplants for a balanced garden.
