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.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.


If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!


Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
