If You're A Cancer, This Is The House Plant You Should Get

If you're a fan of astrology, you probably know that Cancers are considered one of the most emotional signs of the Zodiac. Born between June 21 and July 22,  Cancers also have some of the warmest traits (via Astrology Zodiac Signs). They are known to be family-oriented, compassionate, supportive, and creative.

On the flip side, they struggle with learning to trust others and can be temperamental, but this is often just a result of their deep sensitivity. Since Cancers enjoy keeping to themselves, partners and spouses may initially have a hard time getting to know them because they are guarded. This water sign, ruled by the Moon and symbolized by the crab (via Women's Health), also has a low tolerance for conflict and aims to avoid it as much as possible.

With family being so much at the forefront, Cancers focus on their home life and creating a calm and content space. They highly prioritize spending time with loved ones and enjoying having family and friends visit their homes.

The perfect plant for Cancers

Since home plays such a big role in the contentment of Cancers, things like house plants and flowers help set the calming mood. Pro Flowers recommends a Pachira aquatica, sometimes known as a money tree, for this powerful sign, and a quick peek at this unique plant will tell you why. The multiple stems are intertwined and could symbolize the interconnectedness that Cancers feel with family.

Native to Central and South America, according to Gardener's World, it's a tropical evergreen tree. The publication also notes that according to the principles of Feng Shui, a properly placed money tree brings good luck, and "good fortune is said to be trapped within the trunk and the five-lobed leaves are also considered lucky."

Just like Cancers, money trees are deep, so they require long and sustained, though sporadic, waterings, rather than quick daily splashes. Overall, they are easygoing plants and help strengthen the harmony in a Cancer home.
