As its name suggests, the 'Ressurectio' plant comes back to life after several days of dehydration. Also known as the 'Rose of Jericho, because in contact with water, it unfolds into a beautiful desert rose.

How to resurrect a rose of Jericho?

  1. Fill a cup with water.
  2. Place the plant in the water.
  3. Watch and marvel.

It opens into a rosette thanks to the cells which absorb water and swell.

Advice : with hot water, the plant opens in a few minutes. With cold water, the process takes several hours.

As soon as the branches are no longer in contact with water, they contract again. The deployment of the plant can be done several times. 

To store it, leave it in water for up to 7 days. Then let it dry completely in a warm place for about 2 weeks and store it in a dry place until next Christmas. So the Jericho rose can bloom again as many times as you want.
