Rose of Jericho, Dinosaur Plant, or Resurrection Plant (Selaginella lepidophylla) is one of the most intriguing plants on the planet. Watch it transform from a shriveled mass of foliage into a beautifully spreading moss within hours. Put in the cupboard in a wilted condition for years, and it still does its party trick. But we’re willing to bet you’ll find the fern-like foliage so pretty that you’ll be eagerly misting it down to keep it fresh. Plant it on the surface (it doesn’t have anchoring roots) of a pot with well-drained media, or grow it as an epiphyte or air plant. It’s a real collectors’ item, and this unusual moss from Central America can be seen as a 'living fossil'. We just received a fresh stock of Rose of Jericho all the way from the deserts of Mexico!
