Umbrella Palm Plant - Cyperus Alternifolius, Involucratus, Papyrus, Sedge

One Well Rooted Cyperus Alternifolius Plants (Umbrella Papyrus, Umbrella Sedge, Umbrella Palm)

The number of shoot will increase over time as new shoots will surface and grow.

Cyperus Papyrus, commonly known as Papyrus or Papyrus Sedge is native to Egypt. The aquatic plant grows in full sun, in wet swamps and on lake margins throughout Africa, Madagascar and the Mediterranean countries.

Cyperus papyrus growth is very fast. It can grow up to 12 feet high. Each stem is topped by a dense cluster of thin, bright green, thread-like stems around 10 to 30 cm (4 to 10 in) in length.

It is a tropical plant that requires high humidity and relatively warm

temperatures. The base of the pot should always soak in water. The plant was used in paper-making in Ancient Egypt.

Hardiness zone: 9-11

Once rooted, transfer seedlings to shallow water in direct sun. Submerge entire pot slowly and at a slight angle to minimize soil loss. If the weather is not past frost season, create an indoor water spot using a plastic tub.

Feed cyperus plants regularly with a fertilizer designed for water plants. Stop fertilizing when moved inside for winter.

Prune spent growth regularly to keep dying plant matter out of your water feature. Decaying matter can cause many problems to your mini-ecosystem.

Move plants indoors for winter months or cold spells. Plants left in water and full sun will continue to grow year-round. Leaving your plant in low light and kept moist will keep it dormant until next growing season.
