I am not sure, but I THINK they are on the tips of the "Hairs" that stick out in tufts on the top??? They LOOK to me like the seeds! I wasn't planning on collecting the seeds, but maybe if you Google, you can find a pic of them.

RE: Eqyptian Papyrus

ok thanks. I might even try planting those tufts.

Heathen1 is right - they are on the top tufts.

RE: Eqyptian Papyrus

At what time of the year do the seeds become mature? I have some very brown seeds on top of the tufts and some medium brown. Which one do I collect?

RE: Eqyptian Papyrus

A really easy way to propagate Papyrus is to invert a stem in a glass of water. New plants will grow from the head.
