Cyperus needs watering more often than most houseplants and enjoys standing in water. Any pot or dish that retains water run-off will suffice, just as long as you keep some water in there.
Cyperus ‘Zumula’ likes a warm, light spot in the home but avoid direct sunlight.
Keep the potting compost moist and do not allow it to dry out. Add normal plant food to the water regularly (monthly). This is a happy plant that will grow well with its roots always in water – but then do halve the amount of feed as recommended on the pack.
Spray regularly – it will appreciate it.
Keeping this plant happy and growing – will not be difficult as long as it is standing in water.
Cyperus originated in marshy climes of the (sub-) tropics and have their roots in water for the greater part of the year. It’s a real marsh plant!
Cyperus is separately classified as Cyperaceae.
Here’s a little factoid for you - ancient Egyptians used Cyperus to make papyrus.
