Place the cash locker at the south or south-west corner of the house, facing north, as this is the direction of Kuber and will draw more money into it. You may also set a Kuber Yantra draped in red fabric in a house worship area. This is used for drawing wealth and prosperity.
The color red is used in astrology to bring about change, especially financial change. A yantra is an image, often in the form of a diagram, used in Hinduism for meditation and for seeking answers to questions about the universe. In spiritual practices like prayer and meditation, a yantra is used as an aid in concentrating the mind.
In this case, the red kubera yarn used to make the yantra would signal to the universe that a change was being sought, thus encouraging greater success in attaining it.
Kubera means "gold" in Sanskrit, and it is believed by some people that gold has special powers when used in rituals like these. However, true astrologers believe that what matters is not so much what material you use but rather how you use it. Any type of yarn or string can be used to make a kubera yantra, even old clotheslines are effective if you have no other choice!
5 Vastu Tips for Financial Success and Prosperity at Home
Both money plants should be maintained inside at the south-east corner of the living room or hall, according to Vastu and Fengshui. Lord Ganesha owns the southeast direction in Vastu, while Venus is the ruling planet. This is why vastu practitioners choose money plants in this direction. Ganehsa brings good fortune, and Venus enhances prosperity. Thus, both plants should be kept in that corner of the house where they will receive full sun for most of the day.
If you don't have space for a money plant outside, then at least keep it in a sunny window. But make sure that the plant has enough light exposure, as well as air flow around its leaves. If not, it will suffer from root damage or even die.
Money trees are available in various sizes and shapes. They usually grow between 20 inches and 30 feet high, but there are ones that reach 40 feet. The trunk can be thick or thin, with branches spreading out near the ground, wide at first before narrowing into long slender trunks or even small branches. The leaves are green during the spring and summer, but turn yellow or orange when fall comes. The flowers appear in clusters at the end of short stalks, usually containing ten to twenty petals which open white or pink.
The fruit is like an apple, with a red skin and white flesh inside. It contains seeds covered by a protective layer called "testa".
As a general rule, they should be cultivated indoors. Therefore, the money plant should be kept there.
However, if you have a small garden and enough space, then it's okay to keep them outside too. But make sure that they get at least six hours of sunlight every day. If not, they will not grow properly.
The soil should be changed twice per year. Use a high-quality compost for your money plant. This will help increase its value too!
