Hi folks, I am looking to decorate one of my spot in between living and dining with a pot of plant (30-40cm height). The spot will get morning sun but it's one room away from the window. I may not want those leaves with spikes.. due to feng shui

I searched and narrowed down to a few.

- Top of my list is peace lily but can anyone share if peace lily is a flower or plant which is inauspicious?
- Ficus lyrata also one of my favourite
- Ficus elastica but I find the leaves a little too big and distracting
- 'Fake' christmas tree... sorry don't know it's name

Hope folks who had similar selections and ideas can share more with me. Thanks!

A good way to start is also to find out more about plants that you like.
You can take a walk at World Farm in Bah Soon Pah, and they have a section for indoor plants and shaded plants. You can take a look there and see which plants is attractive to you.

If you like flowers, some orchids like phalaenopsis native to us will do quite well.
For feng shui plants, I know the ZZ plant will do well indoor.
