Description for Cyperus Papyrus
The plant is called umbrella plant because it has a grass-like habit with sprays of foliage at the top of the stems. These sprays of foliage radiate out like the spokes in an umbrella. The stems are rigid and triangular and have white pith inside. The pith is the source of papyrus paper. Papyrus has no frost tolerance and should be moved indoors for the winter.
Planting and care
Papyrus is usually planted by rhizomes in moist, fertile soil in pots and then submerged in an aquatic environment. It can also be planted directly into 3 feet of muddy substrate to hold the heavy stems upright.
Caring for Cyperus Papyrus
- Unlike many other houseplants the water requirement isn't something you can negotiate on as attempting to do so will quickly cause ugly effects with the arrival of brown splotches on the leaves or completely yellow / brown Umbrella Grass stems. Make sure your Umbrella Plant is well watered by using a drip trayThe only time you can cut back on the watering is if temperatures go very low, too much water at this point could cause damage through rotting. Additionally do not immerse the entire pot in water at any point for the same reason.
Typical uses of Cyperus Papyrus
Ornamental use: if you would like to add an elegant, exotic element to your garden, look no further than papyrus. All you need is a sunny spot and a gorgeous pot for an instant makeover with timeless appeal.
