Q.Egyptian Papyrus Troubleshooting

Zone 7 | BackyardGoddess added on June 1, 2013 | Answered

I have a small Egyptian Papyrus that used to create umbels. It is currently in a 1 gal. sized pot in another pot that is kept filled with water. The plant seems otherwise healthy but it doesn’t flower anymore. It is brought in every year when the temperatures start to dip. Any suggestions?

High phosphorus fertilizer or bone meal should help with flowering.

Are you fertilizing? If not, use a well balanced plant food according to package directions.
