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.

WHAT TO EXPECT

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

Kokedama Dish sold separately.

Rose of Jericho

I have two resurrection plants in my home that I bought from Pistils in 2017. I love them and both have become very important to me. Recently, I purchased multiple resurrections plants and has them shipped to my friends as surprise gifts. Everyone is happy and very excited to learn more about these special plants.

Made for a great gift!

I sent this plant to my friend. I ordered it on 12/22 and it arrived in less than a week despite the holidays. It arrived in good condition and my friend is enjoying her new plant.

Thank you!

Plant came carefully packaged and was bigger than I expected. Super cool to watch open up and close back.
