On plant hand of marion



I have just come across the description of a 'plant' which sounds remarkably like your 'Hand of Marion'. It's called 'Resurrection plant' or 'Rose of Jericho' and its latin name is 'Selaginella lepidophylla'. It's described as being like a dried up ball of moss / fronds which uncurl and turn green when placed in water, taking a few hours to do so. Hope this is the answer to your question!
