However, the plant was alive the whole time. Selaginella lepidophylla (aka the Dinosaur Plant) is a very unique plant. It’s a desert plant, native to the Chihuahuan Desert, that is specialized in “returning to life.” Basically this plant goes into a dehydrated state when exposed to dry conditions, until stimulated by water. With enough moisture the plant will return to its true form in about three hours time… Incredible! I am fascinated by plants and this one is no exception.

    What kind of conditions would it thrive in? Is the dehydration a necessary part of its life cycle?

    In my country is very common (spain) and it is called "the Jerico rose" and people believe you have tu put one in water when a pregnant woman starts to give birth, so it opens at the very end of the birth of the child

    If you found similar plants you could do some kind of "pop-up" terrarium. Just add water and it goes from wasteland to forest
