Rose of Jericho, also known as the Resurrection Plant, "Siempre Viva" (i.e. everlasting), Rosa Mariae, and also Dinosaur Plant.
Rose of Jericho is a truly unique, wonderful and magickal plant. It is commonly used for protection, love, peace & harmony. The water strained from a resurrected plant is often used in spells and rituals along with being sprinkled around the home.
To keep your Rose of Jericho, ensure it dries out completely when allowing it to have a rest period - generally 2 days up to 2 weeks at a time.
Your Rose of Jericho will not die, even when dried and curled back into a ball it is still very much alive and can be re-watered to bring it back to it's fullest.
To resurrect your plant, place it in a shallow dish or bowl and water it, you can use cold, warm or even boiling water to bring it "back to life" you can not kill it! The warmer your water, the faster it will spring back out and turn green once more.
Plants generally start to open within a few minutes, if children are patient enough they love watching the magick happen! Most will be completely open within an hour and start turning green, they should be completely open and green by the following day.
We keep our family Rose of Jericho "Jerry" on a large plate of garden pebbles.
Water each day for up to 7 days, then allow it to take a holiday and dry out again completely before you start over.
The water from your plant can be used for your magickal purposes.
