Sansevieria Starfish, also known as Sansevieria cylindrica 'Boncel,' is a unique and visually striking succulent plant. It belongs to the Sansevieria genus, which includes various species commonly known as Snake Plants or Mother-in-law's Tongue. Here are some key features and characteristics of Sansevieria Starfish:

Foliage: The leaves of Sansevieria Starfish are cylindrical and grow in a star-like formation, which gives the plant its name. The leaves are thick, rigid, and upright, with a dark green color and light green horizontal banding or striping. The leaves have a smooth texture and can grow up to a foot (30 cm) in length, although they are typically shorter.

Compact growth habit: Unlike other Sansevieria varieties with more upright growth, Sansevieria Starfish has a more compact and rosette-like growth habit. It forms a cluster of cylindrical leaves that radiate outward from the base, creating a unique and attractive display.

Low light tolerance: Sansevieria Starfish is known for its ability to tolerate low light conditions. It can adapt to various light levels, including indirect or filtered light. However, it can also tolerate moderate to bright indirect light, which may enhance the intensity of its leaf coloration.

Watering and care: Like other Sansevieria species, Starfish is a drought-tolerant plant that prefers infrequent watering. It is important to allow the soil to dry out between waterings to prevent overwatering and root rot. The plant is more tolerant of underwatering than overwatering, so it's best to err on the side of caution and water sparingly. It is advisable to use well-draining soil and avoid leaving the plant sitting in excess water.

Low maintenance: Sansevieria Starfish is known for its low maintenance requirements. It is relatively pest-resistant and does not require frequent repotting. The plant is also known for its air-purifying qualities, as it can help filter and improve indoor air quality by removing toxins.

It's worth noting that Sansevieria Starfish, like other Sansevieria species, is considered mildly toxic to humans and pets if ingested. It's important to keep it out of reach from children and pets to avoid any potential health issues.
