Sansevieria Cylindrica - The Architectural Spear Plant

Introduce a bold, contemporary touch to your indoor garden with the Sansevieria Cylindrica, also known as the African Spear Plant or Cylindrical Snake Plant. This striking succulent is celebrated for its unique, cylindrical leaves that create an eye-catching, sculptural display.

Key Features:

  • Distinctive Foliage: Sansevieria Cylindrica boasts tall, upright, cylindrical leaves that resemble spears or pencils. The leaves are smooth, rigid, and typically range from gray-green to deep green in color, often adorned with subtle horizontal banding or striations.
  • Architectural Form: As the plant matures, it develops a fan-shaped rosette, with the cylindrical leaves radiating outward from a central base, creating a striking, architectural silhouette.
  • Low Maintenance: Known for its resilience and easy care, Sansevieria Cylindrica is an excellent choice for both novice and experienced plant enthusiasts.

Care Instructions:

  • Light: Provide bright, indirect light for optimal growth and leaf coloration. While it can tolerate lower light conditions, the plant may become leggy and produce smaller leaves.
  • Watering: Allow the soil to dry out completely between waterings. Overwatering can lead to root rot, so ensure the pot has good drainage. Water when the top inch of soil feels dry to the touch.
  • Humidity: Sansevieria Cylindrica thrives in average to low humidity levels, making it well-suited for indoor environments.
  • Temperature: Maintain a warm environment, ideally between 65-85°F (18-29°C). Protect from cold drafts and sudden temperature changes.
  • Soil: Use a well-draining potting mix, such as a cactus or succulent mix, to prevent waterlogged conditions.
  • Fertilizer: Feed with a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer diluted to half strength once a month during the growing season (spring and summer). Reduce feeding in the winter.

Special Care Tips:

  • Pruning: Remove any dead or damaged leaves to maintain the plant's appearance. Use clean, sharp scissors or pruners to make cuts.
  • Propagation: Propagate Sansevieria Cylindrica using leaf cuttings or division of the rhizomes. Allow cuttings to callous over before planting in well-draining soil.
  • Repotting: Repot every 2-3 years in spring, using a well-draining potting mix and a pot just slightly larger than the current one.

Display Ideas:

  • Containers: Use decorative pots that complement the plant's architectural form. Ensure the pots have good drainage to prevent waterlogging.
  • Arrangements: Pair with other succulents or cacti for a striking, low-maintenance display. The unique foliage of Sansevieria Cylindrica makes it a perfect focal point in any arrangement.
