Sansevieria Zeylanica, widely known by the common name of Ceylon Bowstring Hemp or simply, bowstring hemp, is an evergreen perennial species of the Sansevieria plant genus from the Asparagaceae family. This one of decorum is particularly really special because of its fan-shaped form.
Sansevieria Zeylanica, a.k.a. the bowstring hemp plant is mainly grown either as an indoor floor plant, due to its hardy nature and easy care, or, commercially, for its fiber. The fiber obtained from the leaves of Sansevieria Zeylanica and Sansevieria Trifasciata is widely used in tropical countries (where it is primarily cultivated for this purpose) to make mats, coarse cloth, cordage, sails, and paper pulp. The dried rhizomes and roots of the plant are also used for some medicinal purposes in some parts of the world. As indoor plants, the Sansevieria Zeylanica plant makes a great display.
