What is a Jericho Flower? - East Meets West USA

Add these crystals for your Jericho Flowers for added blessings. Read Here

This ancient flower can go by many names such as Rose of Jericho, Resurrection Flower or Revival Flower due to it's unique ability to survive without water for years. This rare flower comes from parts of Africa and the Middle East regions. Jericho Flowers are known as the "nomads" of the fern family, as they tumbles across regions, until they find some water; similar to tumbleweeds. The Jericho Flower, gets it's name from the biblical city of Jericho due to it's ability to keep being reborn "from it's ashes". When the Jericho flower is in it's dormant state, it resembles a tightly, curled brown ball with tiny fibrous roots. The Jericho Flower can live decades in this state until it's given some water. However, once a Jericho Flower has been fed water, it begins to open up, revealing greenish fronds. Some Jericho Flowers can surprise us and  bloom beautiful white buds.

Jericho flowers are often associated with miracles and the power of faith. Jericho flowers have come to symbolize the idea that even seemingly insurmountable obstacles can be overcome through faith and determination. The symbolism of the Jericho flower can be applied to our own lives as well. Just like these flowers, we too can overcome the challenges and obstacles that come our way. The key is to have faith, stay focused, and keep moving forward, no matter how difficult the journey may seem. When we put our trust in a higher power, we can find the strength to overcome anything.

This is a great plant to keep in your house as it's said to erase negative influences and bring into your life peace, abundance and harmony. Keeping a Jericho flower in your home will bring many blessings into the household. Additionally, in some cultures, a Jericho Flower is given to women in labor so that it could sync with the contractions. Once the Jericho Flower was fully opened, the mother would be fully dilated.

What you need to revive the Jericho Flower

  • Wide, shallow dish
  • Pebbles to spread across the bottom of the dish
  • Distilled, room-temperature water
  • A bright spot with indirect sunlight

Taking care of a Jericho Flower is a breeze as it's a very low maintenance plant. Place this flower into a saucer with enough water to submerge the roots and watch it slowly open up. Do not submerge the entire plant in water, this will cause mold. Only the roots (fibrous strands on back of flower) should touch water. Once a week, let the Jericho flower go completely without water for a day and dry up.

I ordered a med plant and received it today. I did not receive any plant instructions or any information. But it seems to be opening up nicely, but not very green. How big can they grow? How fast? And can you propagate off of these plants? Love 💘. It!

I used to have one that my mother-in-law gave me, but I do not know where it’s at. When we moved to another city it was packed. I love the way it looks.

I received my plant and after giving it water it opened up beautiful. I am so happy with it. The other one I have had for years and only opens up very small and not green. Thanx again about the info about the coins will give it a try.
