Native to Angola, West Africa, Sansevieria cylindrica, commonly known as the Cylindrical Snake Plant, has straight, fleshy leaves, round in cross-section, that emerge stemless from the pot and diminish to a point at the very tip. These extraordinary leaves grow to one to two feet long, and generally dark green with lighter green crossbands.
Snake Plants are fantastic to use in a bedroom, as they not only emit oxygen at night, but also cool the air, which helps us sleep, as well as removing toxins and purifying the air.
This is the straight form, grown in a round group (known as 'spaghetti' formation). Other varieties and forms of Sansevieria are available in store.
Note: Planter sold separately.
