General Information

Sansevieria cylindrica, also known as the Cylindrical Snake Plant or Spear Sansevieria, is a succulent plant native to Angola. S. cylindrica has striped, round leaves that are smooth and a green-gray color. A single leaf is about 1.2 in (3 cm) thick and grows to a height between 2 ft (1m) and 5 ft (2m).The Spear Sansevieria grows fan-shaped, with its stiff leaves growing from a basal rosette. The species is interesting in having rounded instead of strap-shaped leaves caused by a failure to express genes which would cause the cylindrical bud to differentiate dorsoventrally or produce a distinctive and familiar top and bottom surface to the leaf blade. The plant blooms once a year in the spring or mid-summer,producing 1.5 in (4 cm) greenish-white tubular flowers tinged with pink. The species is drought-tolerant and in captivity needs water only about once every other week during the breeding season.The species was described by Wenceslas Bojer in 1837. Sansevieria cylindrica received its name from a competition in a Dutch national newspaper. It is popular as an ornamental plant as it is easy to culture and take care of in a home.
