Tube Umbrella plant
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.

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.
