Sansevieria cylindrica, also known as cylindrical snake plant or African spear plant, is a striking succulent native to Angola. It's characterized by its long, cylindrical, spear-like leaves that grow upright from the base in a fan-like arrangement. The leaves are typically dark green with light green striations, giving them a unique and appealing appearance.

Light

Sansevieria cylindrica thrives in bright, indirect light but can tolerate low light conditions. Avoid prolonged exposure to direct sunlight, as it can scorch the leaves.

Watering

Allow the soil to dry out between waterings, as overwatering can lead to root rot. Water thoroughly when the top inch of soil feels dry during the growing season (spring and summer), and reduce watering in the dormant season (fall and winter).

Soil

Plant your Sansevieria cylindrica in well-draining soil to prevent waterlogging. A cactus or succulent mix works well.

Temperature

This plant prefers temperatures between 60°F to 85°F (15°C to 29°C). Protect it from cold drafts and extreme temperatures.

Humidity

Sansevieria cylindrica is adaptable to different humidity levels, but it generally prefers average room humidity.

Fertilisation

Feed with a balanced liquid fertiliser diluted to half strength every 2-4 weeks during the growing season. Avoid fertilising during the dormant period.

Propagation

Propagate by dividing the rhizomes or by leaf cuttings. Allow cuttings to callus for a day or two before planting them in moist soil.

Pests and Diseases

Sansevieria cylindrica is relatively pest-resistant, but it can occasionally be susceptible to spider mites or mealybugs. Keep an eye out for signs of infestation, such as webbing or white cottony clusters, and treat promptly with insecticidal soap or neem oil.
