Crystals and Plants

Crystals and plants I have always been drawn to both crystals and plants. From a young age, I loved collecting shells and shiny stones from the beach and one of favourite places to be was in my dad’s huge greenhouse; I vividly remember the thrill of seeing tiny seeds sprout from the soil we had carefully sieved ready for sowing. It seems only natural to me now that both my passions go hand in hand. I have a collection of over one hundred plants, and probably as many crystals now too. I have always placed crystals around my plants or inside my plant pots, it just felt intuitively right, and of course it looked good too. I place them around the base of the plant, and sometimes I bury a crystal beside the plants roots (I do this mainly with young plants to boost their growth). I used to do this mostly because it looked nice, but then I found that the plants that had crystals close to them and especially those with crystals inside their pots grew bigger and healthier than those without crystals! When I researched it a bit more, I wasn’t surprised to find that crystals actually do boost plants growth! Crystals vibrate at particular frequencies and just as we can utilise these frequencies in crystal healing for ourselves, we can also use the energy of crystals to nurture our plants. Every crystal vibrates differently, some have low vibrational energy, some have high, some are grounding, and some are stimulating. If we direct these properties into our plants, we can encourage them to flourish. As well as placing crystals beside your plants, you can carry crystals with you while you tend to your plants or you can place them in your watering can for around an hour or two before you water your plants (always ensure the crystal you are using is compatible with water, some crystals should never be placed in water as it cause them to oxidise or erode). For all methods, don’t forget to program your crystal first! You can use many different crystals to nourish and support your plants; tourmaline acts as a natural insecticide, and if your plants are ailing, this is a great crystal to bring it back to health and encourage healthy growth. Green calcite is a very soothing stone, it is said to be excellent for stressed plants. My top 5 crystals for boosting my plants are moss agate, moonstone, green aventurine, tigers eye, and malachite. Moss agate - known as the gardeners stone, this crystal is said to have magical effects on agriculture! Its low vibration balances and stabilizes plants. This is a good one to place inside all your plant pots or even have buried near plants roots. Moonstone - connects to the energies of the moon which are associated with fertility and the cycles of life. It is a very restorative crystal. Place near your plants or with new seedlings to encourage growth. Green aventurine - carries a strong connection to Earth. It can help us tune out and connect to nature, it is a great stone to carry while you are tending to your plants. Tigers eye - a grounding, earthing stone, associated with strength and known for its healing qualities. Place with your plants to channel this energy into healing ailing plants. Malachite - known as the stone of transformation, this crystal is perfect for energizing your plants and encouraging growth. If you have fruiting plants (such as tomatoes, courgette or strawberries etc), using crystals to boost them is considered especially beneficial for health as it is super nourishing to eat crystal enhanced home grown fruit and veg. Obsidian and onyx are particularly recommended; stick them into the soil for maximum benefit. Even if you don’t have a garden, you can try this for herbs too. All you need is a windowsill to grow a few pots of fresh herbs, maybe parsley, rosemary and coriander or whatever your favourite herbs are. Plant them up and add some crystals to their pots to enhance their growth. Then add them to your favourite dishes a wonderful health boost. Using crystals to boost your plants is a wonderful way to attract abundance into your life. There are many plants that considered ‘lucky’ and said to bring prosperity to your home. My two favourite spiritual plants are Money Plants (also known as Jade Plant, Lucky Plant or Money Tree) and Lucky Bamboo. Boosting these plants with ‘lucky’ crystals can effectively double the boost of abundance. Money plants are considered to bring good fortune to their owner. As a money tree grows, the abundance of leaves is said to reflect the owners growing good fortune. It is said to be especially lucky to place a money tree by your front door. There is a saying "Jade by the door, poor no more". Try placing a money plant with a citrine crystal in its pot by your main entrance for a double boost of abundance; citrine is known for its powers to attract wealth, prosperity and success. It is also a good crystal for cleansing and energising plants...... continue reading here
