Rasingam ji
Should it be S. roxburghii or S. roxburghiana? Kindly give some differentiating characters from similar looking S. cylindrica.

Dear Singh Sir,

The correct spelling of the plant is Sansevieria roxburghiana Schult.f.
S. roxburghiana is native to India and very commonly distributed in the rocky areas of deciduous forests.

There is a species called Sansevieria cylindrica.
A kind of BOW STRING HEMP. Because Bow string was used to be made of
Sansevieria fibres. It now belongs to Ruscaceae family.
