Welwitschia mirabilis: This Namib Desert plant's striking appearance may be unnerving, and some cultures associate it with negative energy.
Jade Plant (Crassula ovata): The Jade Plant is associated with luck and prosperity, yet other traditions advise against planting it in specific rooms.
Wilted or Dying Plants: Many cultures believe that wilted plants have negative energy and should be removed to maintain positive energy.
White Sage (Salvia apiana): White sage is utilized in many purification ceremonies, but overharvesting and cultural appropriation have led some to identify it with bad energy.
Thorny Plants (e.g., Roses with Thorns): Roses with sharp prickles can symbolize protection but also negative energy.
These beliefs must be approached with cultural sensitivity and an awareness that interpretations differ.
