The Ozelot swordplant is a colourful, vigorously growing Echinodorus hybrid. It was bred by Hans Barth (Dessau, Germany) in the early 1990s and remains very popular in the aquarium hobby. Characteristic for this cultivar are narrowly elliptic submerged leaves that are brownish-red with dark red spots during sprouting. Older leaves keep their dark spot pattern but their basic colour changes to dark olive. The leaf rosette is about 20-50 cm tall and 20-40 cm wide.
Echinodorus 'Ozelot is also recommendable for aquarium beginners, but as well as other swordplants, it prefers nutrient-rich bottom and at least moderate lighting.
With its maximum height of about 50 cm, The Ozelot swordplant is best placed as solitary plant or small, loose group in the midground to background of rather large tanks.
Please be aware that the bunch/potted variation of this plant could contain snails and other invertebrates.

The plant I have received was a bit smaller than the one pictured, but what a beauty! Definitely a statement plant. Dark olive spots form a very nice contrast to the bright leaves. (read more)
The plant I have received was a bit smaller than the one pictured, but what a beauty! Definitely a statement plant. Dark olive spots form a very nice contrast to the bright leaves. It is a very undemanding beginner plant. It is not picky when it comes to water parameters, but it will be most happy if planted in nutrient-rich soil. Does well without CO2 injection.
