One more fact should be added to the listed signs and superstitions about the violet. If you love your flower very much and take good care of it, but it quickly withers and dies, this may mean that the plant has taken away a serious illness or damage from you. It is difficult to say whether the he alth of a plant is really related to the well-being of its owner, but this point of view has become widespread. Florists also note that most often violets die due to root rot.
The beauty of violets was appreciated by the ancient Greeks. They grew flowers in their homes to beautify their surroundings. But since time immemorial, there has been a belief that this flower is a real vampire. So, it is believed that it gradually drains the vitality of people who sleep in the same room with this culture. This opinion has a basis, moreover, scientifically substantiated.
The fact is that during the daytime, flowers produce oxygen during photosynthesis (and it takes place only under the influence of sunlight), and at night, like people, they absorb it and release carbon dioxide. If the roomsmall, and the violet has grown, then a person inhales a large amount of carbon dioxide. This can lead to mild poisoning, which in the morning is manifested by muscle weakness, migraine and general malaise. You can solve the problem very simply: you need to move the flower from the bedroom to another room where no one sleeps.
There are a few more signs and superstitions about violets that reveal the flower from the negative side. For example, it is widely believed that buying violets from strangers or in an unknown flower shop can lead to a black streak in life, and this is accompanied by failure and bad mood. In addition, strangers can jinx you by selling a flower, which will create negative energy around the plant. This problem is also solvable: if you want to grow violets at home, then purchase the plant from trusted stores and sellers that you know.
If you are single…
The meaning of violet for unmarried girls is negative. There is a fairly popular opinion that this plant should not be cultivated by those people who want to start a family. It is believed that violet repels potential suitors from girls. This superstition has its roots in ancient times. A few centuries ago, girls were forbidden to grow saintpaulia on the windowsill, as it "forced" men out of the house.
Isotericists explain this as follows: violets have female energy, and they give it to the environmentspace. And in a family, female and male energy must be in equal amounts so that the house is a full bowl. Representatives of the stronger sex may feel oppressed if there is too much female energy. Young people in whose houses the saintpaulia is already growing often cannot find a girl, because young people feel feminine energy in their homes and feel superfluous. All this makes the violet a flower of loneliness.
However, flower growers consider such signs and superstitions about violets in the house unfounded. Experienced gardeners assure: a small beautiful flower can in no way interfere with the personal happiness of its mistress or owner (only if the pot does not fall on the head of the boyfriend or chosen one). It is impossible to argue that life on the personal front does not work out precisely because of violets. In most cases, the cause of loneliness is a person's attitude towards the opposite sex and his psychological attitude.
As you already understood, there are many negative signs and superstitions about violets. Many people tend to believe that the appearance of this plant in the house will lead to misfortune and loss.
