Sansevieria cylindrica is a great exotic-looking house plant grown for its cylindrical foliage. A very durable and tough plant. Best of all, these plants can be almost entirely ignored and still thrive.
Sansevieria cylindrica is only new to the United States; people in the United Kingdom and Australia have been growing them for some time. Sometimes called the African spear plant, the Sansevieria cylindrica offers all the ease and durability of the popular snake plant and the appeal of lucky bamboo. The plant consists of stout, cylindrical spears that spring from the sandy soil. They can be braided or left in their natural fan shape. The basic species is Sansevieria cylindrica, although there are a few varieties available, and some growers have experimented with braiding or shaping the basic plant. Spear-like Sansevieria may be lightly banded or solid colored, ranging in size from 12 to 24 inches.
