The African Spear Plant (sansevieria cylindrica) is a remarkably resilient and decorative house plant. It thrives in direct sunlight or in semi-shade. Tolerate extreme drying-out of the potting medium. Very gentle watering in the summertime and once a fortnight in the wintertime is sufficient. Do not water too much or the roots will rot.
If you want the plant to grow and develop new shoots, place it in a bright spot and add a low concentration of fertilizer when watering in the summer months.
It thrives at normal room temperatures from 15 to 30°C.
