Dwarf Egyptian Papyrus Plant


Cyperus Papyrus

  • Full sun to partial shade

  • Frequent watering

  • Not Frost hardy

  • Moist and rich

Papyrus grass is easy to grow. It prefers full sun but can also be raised in partial shade. 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 (91 cm.) of muddy substrate to hold the heavy stems upright. The plant needs to be kept moist, if not submerged.
