The Cyperus alternifolius, also known as the Umbrella plant or Papyrus, is a really easy, low-maintenance plant! You don’t have to worry about giving this plant too much water, as it LOVES wet roots as it is a semi-aquatic plant! Place an innerpot inside a large pot, which can be constantly filled with water. The mother plant of these cuttings started as a cutting from our friends’ plant. That plant has been in her family for generations, and we feel honored that we can pass on the lineage! When you purchase a Cyperus alternifolius cutting from us, it doesn’t have any roots as the cutting has a better chance of survival this way. We will trim the Cyperus after your order is placed. When you receive the cutting, place it upside down in a jar filled with water. New roots and stems will appear within a few weeks! When a new stem has a length of ~5 cm, the cutting can be transferred to soil.
