Plants in Pots
- Description: Plants growing in pots. The red plant in the tall blue pot is called a "good luck plant" or "Ti plant," and is native to southeastern Asia, Papua New Guinea, Melanesia, northeastern Australia, and Polynesia. At one time in Polynesia, the plant was eaten for food and medicinal purposes. Also, in Hawaii the leaves were once thought to be very powerful and were worn by priests during rituals. Today, some Hawaiians still believe that this plant brings good luck.
