Care

Resurrection plants don’t need soil, they are epiphytes but typically they are grown on a bed of gravel. It prefers plenty of light, if it doesn’t get enough it will curl up. But don’t worry, you can always revive it. It’s fine at most average temperatures but the main thing is that you need to ensure that the temperature doesn’t fluctuate. When watering it, use distilled or natural rain water for the best results. Do not over water it, root rot will quickly set in.
