Observing Selaginella lepidophylla

In 4th grade Science and Technology we have been observing an unusual plant sometimes referred to as a resurrection plant. It has the ability to dry out for years and then rehydrate when placed in water. We were able to make careful observations, drawings and took digital images of the transformation. In this video, a picture was taken every 20 seconds for 8 hours and then rendered into a video. Enjoy!
