Thanks to the herbal magic legends and traditions, we have learned there are diverse superstitions about plants, like the virtues and powers attributed to them over many years. Aside from their medicinal uses, there are the magical and ritualistic applications. For human beings, plants are the place where faith can be found and thus their interest in possessing them; because of the belief or power that plants provide. The four-leaf clover is the main symbol of good luck, the aloe plant attracts good luck and abundance (if you place a red ribbon on the plant you will avoid all envies). Bromeliad flowers provide abundancy and just like ferns and jasmine, they are powerful talismans that attract love.
