One of my favorite places here in Manila is the Manila Seedling Bank located at the corner of EDSA and Quezon Avenue. Why? Because it is home to many orchids, ornamental plants and bonsai trees. You can go there and buy potted plants, seedling fertilizers, landscaping materials, stones and garden supplies.
When I dropped by there last December, one of the things that caught my eye was this money plant. Also known as jade plant, crassula, lucky plant, this plant is associated with good luck and prosperity. During the celebration of Chinese New Year, it is decorated with small red envelope, Chinese coins and/or red ribbon (just like you see below) to bring wealth to the family.
This is my first entry to Ruby Tuesday, and I wish each and every participant prosperity, luck and good health all throughout 2013. Have a great Tuesday!
