  1. Default Tube Umbrella plant

    0 Not allowed!
    I'm doing a little research but I've run into trouble. The plants sold at PetSmart as an "Umbrella plant" lacks a scientific name and I've turned up a couple of different identity possibilities and they all have slightly different care.

    Spathiphyllum wallisii/ peace lilly?
    Cyperus alternifolius (not as likely, I think)

    I'd like to know the proper care for it because right now I'm thinking a potted pond plant but I want to be sure.

    Thank you!

    The Umbrella plant is also called the White Flag plant. Sometimes used in betta bowls but are not an aquatic plant. The only umbrella plant I know of are the Umbrella tree plant that grows into a large plant. Also not aquatic.
