The Rose of Jericho
Selaginella Lepidophylla - eternal living plant
The Rose of Jericho is a desert Plant. For long periods, these "Roses" live in desert regions, growing and reproducing as any other Plant until the environment no longer supports an adequate existence. When this time comes, they retract their roots from the soil and allow the desert winds to carry them across the desert, until they arrive in a place where they can continue to grow and spread. You could say they feel their way through this process, as they don't necessarily remain in the first place they stop, but feel into the nature of the place to see if it is adequate to enhance growth. There they may stay, and grow, or indeed they may move again many times. But at all times, they feel, and trust to the movement that surrounds them. Put them in a plate with water for a week and the Rose starts living, replace the water every day, the old water can be drunk or spread in your house for cleansing.
After a week let the Plant drie out, absorb the negativity from the surrounding and put it outside for a night to breath. This can be repeated endlessly ...
