It was a nice tall plant outside. I didn't measure it, but later ( as a submerged houseplant inside) it was measured at 6 1/2 ft tall for the tallest stalks.

By then end of 8 months inside it is needing to go back out. I battled scale all winter( which it came with when I bought it)- I think I might have finally won.

I also added a shorter variety- umbrella type- to the show. We had a lot of wind yesterday. It broke half the tall papyrus stalks. It didn't cause any damage to the shorter umbrella type.

Hi Karen,
Glad to hear that your papyrus overwintered ok, I bet by now it's already starting to shoot up some healthy new fronds. I don't think there's anywhere in the house I could have overwintered one that big.

Have you ever tried to propagate it with cuttings?
