This very famous herbaceous plant, pertaining to the sedge family, is native to the African continent but it was introduced to many other parts of the world and today it can be found in Asia, Europe and the Americas. It its natural habitat, it grows in swamps and along river margins. It forms a rhizome that produces a cluster of angular culms, beautifully topped by tufts of very thin, shiny green leaves, similar in appearance to a feather duster and inflorescences with brown-green flower clusters, followed by brown, nutlike fruits. The papyrus has a long history of use, being immediately associated with Egyptian culture, where it was used for paper making but also much appreciated as an edible (rhizome and stems), medicinal and ornamental plant. A great ornamental plant for warm-temperate climates, classed as a deciduous perennial.

Just cover with a light sprinkling of soil. Darkness may aid germination, cover seed and keep moist. Ideal temp. 21°C. Germination takes 2 weeks approx. Transplant a clump of seedlings at a time, approx. 8 weeks from germination into 8-10 cm pots and grow on. Transplant again to a larger pot after another 8 weeks and grow on again under glass or plant out in summer.
