Product Description

The Ozelot Sword is a hybrid between Echinodorus schlueteri 'Leopard' and Echinodorus barthii, which is what gave it the marbled spots on the elongated green leaves. If the conditions are sub optimal, the plant grows more slowly and a bit smaller but will not lose its spotted coloration. 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°-83°F, with an alkalinity of 3-8 dKH and a nuetral 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.

Approximate Shipping Size: Potted. 4" to 6";
