Q.Papyrus Fronds Drying Out

Zone 19143 | leef added on May 26, 2020 | Answered

Within a couple days of brining the potted papyrus home, all the hairs became dried out. Is this because of not enough water? Will the fronds/hairs grow back from a stall where they’ve dried or should I cut that stalk back? Should I trim the dry hairs?
