What Is This Houseplant?

I have had no use with online searches trying to figure out with kind of plant this is. It is about a foot in height and the spikes are very firm, almost rock hard I would say. Also I am not sure if they are all one plant or five grown together. If you could give me any clue that would be wonderful!

I will try to research this later but it looks like a plant that is normally found in water (but can also be grown in soil/pots) and may be in the cattail family.

Hopefully someone will come along with better information.

It's not a water plant at all! Water would rot it. It's a Sansevieria Cylindrica

Sanseveria cylindrica. It is a type of snake plant or mother in law tongue. But spikey

I have lots of snake plants and have never seen one like this as it seems that generally snake plants have open leaves/shoots and these appear closed like a rod (am I wrong?).

I have only seen water/pond plants that grow like this but I cannot be sure as I have not found one exactly like this.

I have just found this plant today and when checking back on this question, I see that several other posters say the same thing/name as I found.

Although I do have a pond plant that looks almost exactly like this, it is true that it is not a pond plant, but a Sansevieria cylindrica or Cylindrical Snake Plant (and a host of other names).

Here is a link that may help you take care of this unusual group of plants.
