Orpine is also known by the names “live-long” and ‘life forever” due to this plant’s tenacity for life. Because of its fleshy leaves and swollen roots, orpine has a rare ability to stay fresh and alive, long after having been uprooted. It will live a long time if uprooted and hung up in a room without earth or water, subsisting on the store of nourishment in its fleshy leaves and swollen roots. The 16th-century herbalist John Gerard remarked about orpine as “noting that one could set a stalk of it in clay and the stalk would stay green and even grow if watered”. This resistance to drying and dying made live-long an object of superstition over the ages.
