The Rose of Jericho Plant symbolizes resurrection, rebirth, enduring love, and longevity. Rose of Jericho, also known as Jericho rose, resurrection flower, resurrection fern, resurrection plant, is said to call in wealth, provide protection, bring good luck, and absorb negative energy. The plant can dry out completely and “die” and then come back to life after a few hours in water.
After buying the Rose of Jericho plant, it needs to be watered and "woken up" again. If you are planning on using it for spiritual purposes, there is a special way to do this. First, buy a bowl large enough to hold the plant once it opens up. (Glass bowls are best, but make sure whatever bowl you choose is sealed or glazed with non-toxic material.) The bowl should be washed with Holy water, dried, then filled with fresh, clean water. Next, hold the dried plant in your hands. When you do this, feel the energy of the plant. Meditate, say prayers, chant, picture it filling with golden light, or do whatever other spiritual practices feel right to you. When the plant feels ready, place it in the water. Replace the water with clean water every few days.
