Lotus (Kamal)

If a small pond is made in the ishan kona, a little away from the main kona and lotus is grown in it, then it pleases goddess Lakshmi. She resides in such a house and with her blessings the family is always blissful.


Peepal, Goolar and Pakad

Peepal tree in the West is considered to be beneficial. Even if peepal is grown in a pot for pooja purpose, it should be placed in the West. Similarly Goolar is beneficial in the South and Pakad in the North. In the opposite directions they start giving the opposite results.


Papaya (Papita)

Vastushastra considers papaya to be inauspicious in the house. If it happens to grow on its own, then it should be pulled out and planted elsewhere. If it is already grown up, then it should not be cut. One should wait till it stops producing flowers and fruit. Then a hole should be made on its trunk and some asafetida (hing) should be packed in it. The tree will dry up on its own. After this a beneficial plant must be planted to counteract this unkind act.


Coconut (Nariyal)

It is an auspicious tree to have in the house. It promotes the progress, honour and status of the family.


Pomegranate (Anar)

A fruit bearing anar tree is considered to be auspicious, but it should not be in the Agneya and Nairritya kona. In some places having anar in the house is not considered to be good, but this view is applicable to the non fruit bearing variety of anar.


Turmeric (Haldi)

It is not considered auspicious to have haldi (Turmeric) within the boundary of the house. Even if it grows on its own, it should be removed.


Banyan (Bargad)

It is an important tree according to Vastu. It is very auspicious to have Bargad towards the East of house or an institution. It fulfils all the desires, but its shadow should not fall on the house. Bargad is not auspicious in the West of the house.


Custard apple (Sitaphal)

It is not auspicious within the boundary of the house. But if it grows on its own, it should not be pulled out, instead an Amla and a fruit bearing Anar should be planted along side it. This destroys the ill effects of Sitaphal.



It is an auspicious tree. It destroys the ill effects of many other trees.


Rose apple (Jamun)

In South direction, this tree is considered to be good. In other directions it is neutral. With Jamun in the North, Amla and Anar in the house is also a must.


Mango (Aam)

From the point of Vastu, mango is not an auspicious tree to have, but if it grows on its own, it should not be pulled out. Everyday some black til should be sprinkled around its roots followed by watering. Additionally a Nirgundi plant should be planted near it to destroy the ill effects of Mango.


Margosa (Neem)

Having Neem in the Vayavya kona is very auspicious. If a person plants seven such Neem trees he attains Shivaloka after death. A person who plants three Neem trees enjoys the happiness of surya loka for hundreds of years.


Henna (Mehandi)

It is inauspicious in the house.


Bilba (Belpatra)

It is extremely auspicious. It is a favourite of Lord Shiva. Lakshmi Ji, the Goddess of wealth and prosperity resides in a house for generations where the tree of Bel is planted.



It is an inauspicious tree for the house.


Auspicious trees

Presence of Ashoka, Maulashree, Shami, Champa, Anar, Supari, Kathal, Ketaki, Malti, Kamal, Chameli, Nariyal and Banana in the house promotes prosperity. Lakshmi ji blesses such a house.
