Re: Cyperus helferi

I have the standard "small form" and it tends to have a few leaves that have 
some bad spots at the tips from time to time.  The leaves don't die back 
completely AFAIK on mine.  Cyperus is a relatively big genus, and I recall 
reading that only C. helferi survives continuous submersion.  Perhaps the 
"tall form" you have is a hybrid and thus doesn't hold up as well
