Echinodorus 'Green Ozelot' is an easy to grow variety of sword plant. It has large green leaves with darker spots that distinguish this sword from others. The ozelot sword plant is a good choice for beginners looking for a midground or background plant for their aquarium.
These plants were created from a hybrid of E. schlueteri ‘Leopard’ and E. barthii plants.
Ozelot sword plants are not picky when it comes to water parameters, but they do need good, nutrient-rich soil in order to thrive. CO2 injection is not necessary for these plants. Moderate light will keep Ozelet swords sprouting new leaves weekly, but the plant will do fine under a range of lighting conditions.
Ozelot swords propagate through side shoots that grow off of leaves.
