Selaginella lepidophylla, also known as (false) rose of Jericho and resurrection plant, is a species of desert plant, native to the Chihuahuan Desert of the United States and Mexico, noted for its ability to survive almost complete dehydration. During dry weather, its stems curl into a tight ball and uncurl only when exposed to moisture. The plant is sold as a novelty item as a bare root in its dry state. It can be revived with only a little water. After wetting, the plant turns green.
