General Information

Sansevieria cylindrica is a succulent plant native to Angola.
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.
