The Rose of Jericho is believed to have magical qualities because it goes from seemingly dead to vibrant life. It's used to usher in prosperity, cash and blessings while removing negativity and blockages.
Christians see the Rose of Jericho as a symbolic of the womb of Mary, so it is often displayed at Christmas. Not surprisingly, they also see the death and resurrection of Christ in its ability to “die” and then recover.
Hoodoo practitioners say that it will bring prosperity if you add coins to the water or place the coins/bills on the plant after it unfurls. You can then leave the plant in the water for a few days before brushing the water onto windows and doors to let prosperity in.
Place your plant in a bowl of water, and it will unfold in a few hours. Don’t leave it standing in water for more than a few days, because it may rot.
Use non-chlorine water (tap water left out over night) or rain water. Change daily, and give it “rests” without water.
It will need partial light and shouldn’t be exposed to harsh frosts.
Please note plants vary in both size, shape and the color can range from deep brown to vivid green. Color/shape/size does not effect their magick.
