Sword Ozelot Sword (Echinodorus 'ozelot')AquariumPlants.com
Ozelot Sword (Echinodorus 'ozelot') is a beautiful broad leaf sword with red spots on elongated green leaves. Medium hardiness. It needs rich substrate (nutrients to roots) and is copper sensitive. This species is amphibious, and will grow either submersed or partially submersed. Requiring little attention after the initial planting, the Ozelot Sword is a great plant for beginners.
The Ozelot Sword requires moderate to high lighting, approximately 3 watts per gallon provided by full spectrum (5000-7000K) bulbs. The temperature of the water should be between 73-83F, with an alkalinity of 3-8 dKH and a neutral pH.
The Ozelot Sword propagates by rhizomes, or adventitious shoots, that grow off of leaves. A prolific plant under most circumstances, a new leaf once a week is not uncommon

Arrived in great condition and are continuing to look good.
Received the plants fast . These swords have great markings and are growing great. Thanks
This has become my go to sword. I have purchased several of these from this site and they always arrive beautiful. I have them in 2 of my tanks and they just add so much interest and color. Not only are they beautiful but they are easy to take care of!
i ordered 6 different plants for my anglefish tank and they came in yesterday. i know that the angel's like to use the broad-leafed sword plants to lay their eggs on, and although i may not be trying to breed them just yet, (as i am trying to nail down everything i can about plants first) this plant looks very "fitting" with my fish. mine did not have quite as many leafs as the pictured plant above, but it is a beautiful 10" tall, healthy plant! and i was not unsatisfied with ANY of my plants from this website! i would reccomend this site to anyone!
