Ti Plants

The Hawaiians consider the Ti plant a sacred symbol. Ti plants surround homes and temples to protect and hold the good fortune inside.

 

It is said that Ti, planted to the right of one's front door, will ward off spirits. The leaves are used to "oki," to cut and release the bound spirits of this world, and allow them to journey to their proper place.

Ti leaves were often worn around the neck and as wristlets and anklets as decoration and as protective charms.

 

The Ti plant surrounds many homes and is considered to be a plant of healing. Many relax in a ti garden and find that they are able to achieve deeper meditation.
