The plant Rose of Jericho or Selaginella lepidophylla is able of surviving after really long periods of drought, even years. Yet, once it is left in a humid environment, it “ressurects” and its dried leaves are replaced by a green flower-shaped plant. Filmmaker Sean Steininger collected the resurection film shots of 7 different plants and presents them in a really impressive video, in which nature charms us.
