HI Dee,

Sansevieria cylindrica

Your plant is called a Sansevieria Cylindrica (African Spear). Here are some care instructions for it.

Light: A sansevieria plant can be placed anywhere in a room from the darkest corner to next to the brightest window. The better the light the faster a sansevieria grows.

Water: Over-watering is the only way to kill a sansevieria. Always allow the soil to completely dry out before watering. During the winter, in a low light area, a sansevieria plant will need water only once a month. When in doubt, do not water!

Fertilizer: Feed monthly when the plant is actively growing with a cactus plant food diluted to 1/2 the recommended strength. Never use a fertilizer that contains nitrates on a sansevieria.

Temperature: Sansevieria plants grow well when the temperature is 60°- 85°F (15.6°-29.4°C)

These plants are considered poisonous and should be kept away from pets and children. Read more about common houseplants that are poisonous in Don’t Feed Me To Your Cat! A Guide to Poisonous Houseplants
