Papyrus makes a wonderful specimen for a warm conservatory, stood in a shallow tray of water. It can be placed outdoors for the summer in a warm sunny sheltered location. Stems naturally droop after a while and can be removed. Plants will be cut back in order for us to pack them, but they will soon sprout new leaves. Good-sized plants in 2 litre pots.
