Rose of Jericho


Resurrection Plant // Siempre Viva Plant

Selaginella lepidophylla, or "False" Rose of Jericho is also nicknamed "The Ressurection Plant".


This plant has the unique ability to dry up and then come back when water is reintroduced.


This plant is a type of spike moss and is found in the Chihuahuan desert of Mexico, New Mexico, and Arizona.



Rebirth, New Beginnings, Creation

The Jericho Rose has long been used in rebirthing spellwork. Each fern starts off brown, dry, and curled into itself.


Traditionally these unique plants are used at a time when a new beginning is in order, on the New Moon, or when a "rebirth" is sought. This ancient plant reminds us that there is always life after death



Put the fern in a shallow dish of water. The roots of the plant should be able to reach the water easily. Change water daily for no more than 7 days, or until your Work is done. Remove from the water and let your fern close back up. Reuse when you need another new beginning.
