Also known as a 'Resurrection Plant' or 'Rose of Jericho', Selaginella lepidophylla are an amazing spikemoss native to Chihuahuan desert. During dry periods, the plant curls up and goes dormant. Once it rains and the plant has access to water again, it 'resurrects', unfurling and becoming green again! To see the transformation, watch this timelapse video we made!
Small (1-2" balls) and Large (2-3" balls) sizes available
Bright indirect light or direct sun
Place in dish of room temp water, with roots submerged. Plant will ‘resurrect’ and unfurl within 24-48 hours. Drain dish and allow plant to dry 1x a week.
1x a month allow plant to return to dormant state before resurrecting it once more. It is normal for some leaves to remain brown.
Selaginella are non-toxic to pets, according to CalPoison & the ASPCA
