    Sansevieria cylindrica, also known as the cylindrical snake plant, African spear or spear sansevieria,[1] is a succulent plant native to Angola.

    Description

    Sansevieria cylindrica has striped, elongate, smooth, greenish-gray subcylindrical leaves. They are up to 3 cm (1 in) diameter and grow up to 2 m (7 ft) above soil.[1] The Spear Sansevieria grows fan-shaped, with its stiff leaves growing from a basal rosette.

    The species is interesting in having subcylindical 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.[1][2] The 3 cm (1 in) greenish-white tubular flowers are tinged with pink.[2]

    Cultivation

    The species is drought-tolerant and in captivity requires water only about once every other week during the growing season.[2] The species was described by Wenceslas Bojer in 1837. Sansevieria cylindrica received its name from a competition in a Dutch national newspaper.[1] It is popular as an ornamental plant[1] as it is easy to culture and take care of in a home if given bright sunlight and other required resources.[2]
