This spiky species is from Angola and Zambia. The plants consist of upright, cylindrical leaves that are banded on a slightly roughened surface with a medium-to-dark green color and white, and faintly yellow segments. Cultivar Skyline simply has more patterning than the typical S. cylindrica. These plants offset via underground stolons, like many Sansevieria. The flowers are white and slightly larger than most species in the genus Sansevieria. These plants are rooted offsets in 2-gallon pots.
