Snake plants are well known for their ability to withstand benign neglect. Forgot to water it for a week or three? No problem. Living in that windowless bathroom or office cubicle? Fine. But this Cylindrical Snake Plant, aka African Spear, is too cool to relegate to a distant corner. Thick round leaves can be braided or you can let them grow naturally. Either way, new shoots will eventually emerge at the base of the existing leaves, shooting off the to side in a fan-like pattern. As tempting as it may be to animals, don't let them munch on this house plant - it will make them sick.
