Greg Heck:

On the subject of "resurection plants", there is an epiphytic fern in
Central Florida (a Polypodium, I believe) that also desicates, and
revives quickly when rehydrated. Its common name is resurrection fern.
Botanists at Gainesville should be able to collect it easily enough (probably
on Live Oaks on campus)
