Consider Sansevieria cylindrica’s natural habitat: open (semi-)desert with barely any cover. This plant has evolved to be used to being blasted with sun! In your home, it will therefore actually do best directly in front of the brightest window you can offer it.
Planting a Sansevieria is straightforward as long as you keep its xerophytic nature in mind. Your planter should always have a drainage hole, as these plants hate wet feet. Their roots can rot if they’re left standing in water.
If you’ve got the light and soil situation under control, your snake plant will appreciate being watered whenever its soil has gone fully dry. How often that is depends on the season and conditions.
Sansevierias aren’t the quickest of growers, and they’re used to life in poor soil. Still, if yours is doing well, it might benefit from the occasional application of some succulent fertilizer.
A cylindrical snake plant is unlikely to need much in the way of pruning. Any dead leaves can be removed, but other than that, it should keep looking nice for years to come.
