Sensevieria trifaciata, snake plant, or mother-in-laws tongue

Oh my God what a name 'mother in laws tongue' why because it looks like a snake or is it because it looks sharp like a blade ha ha....

because the leaves are sharp like mother-in-laws tongue. I deliberately did not write earlier. Here is the link http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sansevieria_trifasciata

Sensevieria trifaciata
Also referred to as Bowstring hemp. The fibres in the leaves were used in making Bow strings.

all sensevarias flowered in calcutta in july... at the height of the monsoon... esp if they were growing out in the open... did your plant flower too, ene though it was in a tub?
Mother-in-law's tongue... because sharp edges and many leaf blades.. just as mother in law has many opinions... but let the poor lady enjoy her opinions... she has lost her son to the daughter in law!!!
and we will stick to science...
this is one of the many plants studied by NASA team to see if indoor air can be purrified in the space station by plants... sensevaria came out as an important detoxifier of indoor closed office space air.. plant a few in your offices... (NOT FERNS THEY GIVE OUT THE SPORES PERIODICALLY AND YOUR EYE PATIENTS WOULD SUFFER physically from particles getting in their eyes and perhaps develop allergies to the protien-carbohydrate/lectin coats on the spore ) ...
this is NOT a cactus... cacti are DICOTS, originating ONLY in the Americas...
Sensevarias are MONOCOTS, originating in Africa.
Big difference...
NOT all that have thorns or are sharp or are succulent are cacti...
I know confusing if you are just coming back to Botany... but slowly one begins to remember... so take heart...
and enjoy the process.

Plant is in open in a Joggers Park. I do not know if it had flowered .

'Id 21012012MR1’’ Sansevieria trifasciata flowering at Pune:
Jan 2012
sharing images of Sansevieria trifasciata flowering at a private society at Pune
Family Ruscaceae
Star-shaped flowers, six petals, white on upper surfaces, undersides light chartreuse. sparkle from dusk onwards, thrusting their petals outwards, with tips curled downwards and inwards, 6 elegant looking stamens and a long style with a small stigma. it is only for a night. By noon the next day, the flowers become listless. I could also see the pollinators foraging. The flowers had a lovely sweet fragrance which is only at night when flowers open
The information on this plant was compiled from the following link

Never seen the flowering stage of this ornamental, thanks...
Yes ... Very good photographs
Thank you ... for your appreciation.
Infact this was another moment of joy for me. I was observing the flowers daily for almost 15 days but to my disappointment they looked listless everyday until I read about it on the net and found that they open at dusk. I rushed to see them as it was around 8.00 pm then, and there they were sparkling and smiling with a sweet fragrance.

Requesting to please ID this Sansevieria captured in Jijamata Udyan, Mumbai in January 2014.
S.roxburghiana...?
Thanks ... for your feedback. However, the leaves do not seem cylindrical..
Is this S.trifasciata only?
Sansevieria trifasciata for sure. There are many cultivated varieties of different forms/ colours
