Sansevieria cylindrica is also known as African Spear and cylindrical snake plant, and less commonly as Elephant’s toothpick and Skyline Spear sansevieria.

All of these are apt names for this unique, robust plant.

Although it can withstand very low light conditions, it prefers to grow in plenty of sun and bright light. In the dark, it won’t show too much growth. Placing it near a north-facing window or sheer curtained windows is a good idea. When growing outdoors, it’s best placed in a bright light with shade during the most intense sun in the day. This placement takes advantage of a long growing season and helps the plant survive hot periods.

Due to its drought tolerant nature, it doesn’t require frequent watering.  Watering every 21 to 30 days, should be enough during the summer growing season. Make sure the soil is free draining and dries out before you water the next time as wet soil can lead to root rot. If the leaves turn yellow, or get mushy and soft at their base, you’ve overwatered your plant.
