How do you care for papyrus trees or papyrus plants?


Answer by  ambersfrog (157)

The papyrus is especially needy of sunlight so it should be placed in the most sunlit place in the house. Also the papyrus is sensitive to the water it gets. Hard water can cause the outer edges of the plant to get brown so if you notice this is happening, switch to distilled or rainwater.

Indoors you place in bright filtered light, place pots in shallow trays with water at all times, and fertilize in summer. Needs lots of brightness in winter. Outdoors grow in big pots with a layer of gravel on top of soil, place in shallow part of pond.
