The Rose Of Jericho does not look like a vibrant plant at first glance, but this unique plant has a surprise in store. It also goes by the name resurrection plant because if you soak this dried-up ball of branches for up to 24 hours, you’ll end up with a green and living plant. Rose Of Jericho is as low maintenance as a houseplant can be; simply soak the plant in a bowl of water when it starts to dry out, and it will bounce back.
Best Locations For Growing Rose Of Jericho
Grow this beauty in any area of your home. The Rose Of Jericho is adaptable and easy to maintain. This plant prefers comfortable room temperature, but take care to avoid placing this plant near vents, exterior doors, or drafty windows.
Rose Of Jericho Sunlight Requirements
Bright indirect sunlight is best for the Rose of Jericho. Place this plant in a south-facing window or any area that is regularly bathed in sunlight.
Rose Of Jericho Care
Rose Of Jericho grows in water and does not need soil. Fill a shallow dish with pebbles and water, and place the plants on the stones with the root-side down. The rocks are not mandatory, but they elevate the plant, so only the roots get wet.
Watering Rose Of Jericho
Water is perhaps the most essential part of caring for Rose Of Jericho. Change the water out daily to keep the plant lush. Drain the water and let the plant dry out one week each month. The Rose of Jericho is a bit of a novelty. Some people allow their Rose of Jericho to dry out and store it until they are ready to water it and put it on display. Store dried plants in a paper bag in a cool and dry place.
Feeding Rose Of Jericho
The Rose of Jericho is not a heavy feeder; in most instances, this plant does not need to be fertilized. Only feed the plant if it shows signs of a nutrient deficiency, like yellow foliage and slow or stunted growth. Feed Rose of Jericho by adding a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer to the water once a week when necessary.
