Rose of Jericho is an amazing plant that will look fantastic inside any vivarium - especially a desert setup. The plant dries up to look like tumbleweed but then when you wet it, it unfolds and the whole plant becomes green again. They don't call it the resurrection plant for nothing!
Rose of Jericho is a plant that's unique to the Holy Land - and unsurprisingly has been dubbed the resurrection plant. Because it dries itself out and goes brown, but when you add water to it, it unfolds and becomes newly green again.
Looking like tumbleweed, the Rose of Jericho is ideal for any desert vivarium especially those native to the Middle East like the leopard gecko.
It looks like dry woody tumbleweed, but when you add water to it the leaves go green again - and once it dries it reverts back to its brown state.
Not only is this plant a talking point in itself, it also makes a unique and attractive decoration for your vivarium.
