Starfish sansevieria plants, as their name suggests, are starfish-shaped succulents. Starfish Sansevieria ‘Boncel’ plants are rare but worth searching for. They are a more compact hybrid of Sansevieria cylindrica, or snake plant, a common succulent.
Sansevieria cylindrica is a succulent plant that is native to Angola. It is a common and revered houseplant in China where it is said to embody the eight virtues of the Eight Gods. It is an extremely hardy plant with striped, smooth, elongated gray/green leaves. They can get to about 1 inch (2.5 cm.) across and grow as long as 7 feet (2 m.). It grows in a fan shape with its stiff leaves arising from a basal rosette. It has subcylindrical leaves, tubular rather than strap-like. It is drought tolerant, needing water only about once every other week.
LIGHT: Full to partial shade.
TEMPERATURE: Starfish Sansevieria plants grow exceptionally well in average room temperatures. As long as the temperature is between 55°F and 85°F (13°C – 29°C), the sansevieria will thrive. The snake plant will grow in colder or hotter temperatures, but its growth will be affected.
WATER: Cylindrical snake plants need water only when the potting mix is dry. As with most succulent plants, sansevieria starfish plants don't require extra indoor humidity.
