Cyperus helferi is a plant originally from Southeast Asia, where it grows both submersed or emersed, on the banks of the standing water or in slow flowing water.
Cyperus helferi produces long leaves that bend elegantly along the water column. Despite the fact that it is a “rosette” style plant, it develops a very small system of roots. Many smaller plants are produced at the base of healthy, well-stabilized specimens.
This plant does well in aquariums or ponds.
