Selaginella lepidophylla 'Resurrection plant'
Common names: Spikemoss, Resurrection Plant, Rose of Jericho
Although this plant is a moss, it is native to the desert and has adapted to live in regions where it is not guaranteed consistent water like most members of it's family. It gets it's name, Resurrection plant, from it's ability to withstand drought and travel lazily through arid regions, and resurrect itself in the presence of water.

Care: Resurrections plants will most appreciate distilled water, and are fairly sensitive to chemicals in tap water.
