    It's a weed. The roots need to be constantly moist. They prefer water to the crown.
    The Cyperaceae family is very large and all members like to be wet. If this is the true papyrus Cyperus 'papyrus' it will grow tall, (over 7 feet). They love heat and warm water. There are tropical and hardy varieties and they are all easy to grow. Most will propagate from cuttings of the umbel turned upside down in a bucket of water, they also readily seed themselves and will need to be divided frequently.

    Good luck with your new weed.

    Cheers,
    Sean

    Oh, and it's not a weed, a weed is an "opinion" plant.
    Weed: A plant that is unwanted in a particular place.
    (My definition.)
    Some people hate Dandilions growing in their backyards, I think that they're quite cool, especially how they spread their seeds, and I think that the idea of
    growing plants is just perverted. Growing plants for their sex organs
    It seems you define weed as: "A fast growing plant"
    That's why people say:"Drosera Capensis is a terrarium weed!"
    NOOOO!!! I love my capensis! (lol) So anyways..
    I have my own definition for weed.
