Resurrection Plant with Hidden Crystal
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.
We've hidden a crystal deep inside this mysterious desert plant. When the recipient places their Resurrection Plant in a dish of water, the plant will unfurl to reveal this secret surprise, and stay green and beautiful as long as it's exposed to water. After a few days, allow the plant to dry up and repeat the process.
When fully unfurled, the Resurrection Plant measures about 4-6" across. Dry plant measures about 2-3" across. Stone measures approximately 1". Includes detailed instructions.
Vessel sold separately. Please note, we'll choose from our variety of crystals and gemstones. It's normal for some segments of each plant to remain brown.
I purchased this plant for a friend who has always talked about them and how unusual they are and how she has always wanted one...she is ecstatically pleased and has sent me hour by hour pics of its transformation since she received and opened it..I am so very happy and so satisfied that I am purchasing 2 more for family members!
Doing its thing though slowly and surely very interesting definitely needs care and a warm place otherwise very enjoyable
