Sansevieria cylindrica (Spear Sansevieria) is a very striking succulent from Angola that produces open candelabrum shaped fans with dichotomously branched stout 1” ½ wide gray-green leaves to 2 to 5 feet long from an underground rhizome. The leaves are smooth with narrow groves running much of the length of the leaf which is lightly banded with dark green and terminate with a sharp point. This plant is a great house plant in bright light but can be grown in light shade if brought indoors during cool and wet weather. If it is grown in bright enough light, it can produce a 3 foot spike-like raceme of pink-budded white flowers. Plants grown with too little light will have leaves that splay outward and are not as stout. Plant Sansevieria cylindrica in a well-drained mix and keep fairly dry, especially in winter months as it can go weeks between watering (3 week irrigation intervals are suggested). Sansevieria cylindrica is also known as the Cylindrical Snake Plant, African Spear or Spear Sansevieria. We sell this unusual plant in one gallon containers.
