Resurrection Plant

$ 12.00

The Resurrection Plant, Selaginella lepidophylla, is a botanical wonder known for its ability to seemingly come back to life again and again -- even after completely drying out. Also known as the "Rose of Jericho," this dramatic little tumbleweed curls into a tight ball during dry weather in its native habitat, only to unfurl its lacy deep green fronds when exposed to moisture once more.

To activate this mysterious plant, place it in a dish of room temperature water, ensuring roots are fully submerged. Allow it to rest in a bright spot and watch it unfurl/green over 24-48 hours. Remove from water after 5-7 days and allow the plant to fully dry up before repeating the process. Includes detailed instructions.


When fully unfurled, the Resurrection Plant measures about 4-6" across. Dry plant measures about 2-3" across. Vessel sold separately. Please note, it's normal for some segments of each plant to remain brown.

Resurrection plant

It was fascinating to watch it unfold but it didn’t look like the one pictured. Maybe next time.

Resurrection plant and Ceropegia

Could not be happier with these plants and the prompt delivery, caring service provided by this company. Ceropegia had some defoliation at first but is booming now! Thanks guys

Resurrection Plant

This was the first time I had ordered from your company, but am pleased to say it won't be the last. I have ordered the Resurrection Plant from other companies and had been very dissatisfied, so I was apprehensive about ordering one again from ANY company. My little plant is beautiful and I am looking forward to ordering other plants. Thank you, Ingrid
