The good news is, it’s hard to truly kill a Flower De Jericho. You can let it dry out completely and it will be good as new when you put it in water again. If you’ve ever had issues with mindful plant watering, then this is the plant for you!
The only thing you don’t want to do is leave it in water for too long, as this can cause it to rot.
The trick is to let a Flower de Jericho rest in between waterings instead of leaving it in water indefinitely. This allows it to dry out and refresh between periods in water, which will keep the plant alive longer. These plants are actually very long-lived and have even been passed down generations in families!
Your Flower De Jericho will look like a brown, dried-up ball of moss, which is basically what it is.
It does have roots, but they don’t actually need to attach, so you don’t need soil (it’s more like hydroponics).
To “plant,” fill a small pot or bowl without drainage holes (first time you’ve heard that, right?) with pebbles, sand, gravel- or crystals which is what I like to do, and fill with water until the pebbles are just barely submerged. Perch your Flower De Jericho on top so that the roots touch the water. Place in indirect light (like on a countertop in a sunny kitchen) and watch the magic happen!
How do you water a jericho? The dry Jericho should not be submerged under water. Instead, place your Rose of Jericho in a bowl with water, after half an hour, it will start opening. You can use cold, warm or it is said, even boiling water Water it every day for up to 7 days. Then allow to dehydrate completely (about 2 days), the Jericho will close its branches and curl back into a ball. Then you can re-use it again and again. Many families will carefully keep the plant, passing it from generation to generation as a cherished item.Light
A Flower De Jericho will thrive in good light, but if it curls up in low light (or if you put it away in a closet for safekeeping over the winter) you can always revive it!
