There are many factors that affect nature and by extension, the gardening practices also come in the same agenda. The influences are weather, soil, temperature, and timing, but there are further powers that may affect the success of your plantings. Our ancestors believed in lunar cycles, spirits, religious superstitions, magic talismans, otherworldly lore and ancient beliefs as affecting the plant growth cycle. Crystals have long been part of religious and healing practices, believed to focus and direct energy in beneficial ways. This may explain how crystals can hold sway over plant health, much as it does to the bodies.
