One of the choicest and most unusual species is almost Agave-like in appearance. Native to arid northern Kenya, the leaves are thick and tapering, cylindrical except for a deep channel on the upper side. The rigid, foot-long leaf tapers to a sharp spine-like point. Coloration can vary, light green to bluish, with a powdery 'bloom' or glaucous appearance. This species grows in a rosette shape but according to Chanhinian, who has seen this plant in the wild; it slowly changes to a distichous habit as it matures. We have bloomed many of these plants and have not observed this habit, ours remaining as a rosette. One of its charming qualities is that it propagates on stolons held above the ground, with the offsets supported by stiff, stilt-like roots. Hence, it is sometimes called the 'walking Sansevieria'. A slow, but easy grower.
