Echinodorus Ozelot are an extremely hardy, beautiful and colorful plant ideal for mid ground or background of your aquarium. These sword plants can display dark spotting and veins throughout the large leaves. This variation has a slight gold appearance under high light.
This species of plant thrives best using a nutrient rich soil with additional fertilization (our preference is the Brightwell line of soil which can be found by clicking here). If not provided with enough nutrients, it can decrease the ability of this plant to spread. The use of CO2 in the aquarium will increase the plants ability to grow but is not necessary.

The plant came in without any problems and was way bigger than I expected. Would totally recommend it!
Ever since getting plants at well known commercial stores and seeing the quality of plants they had seeing my plants arrive from here skyrocketed passed my expectations. I’m used to plenty of sad/struggling/yellowing plants so when my bundle came in of these and many more, I won’t go for ordering/buying plants anywhere else.
Now if I only had fish in my tank that didn’t like to pull up plants for sport.
Packaging was beyond amazing and really went out of the way compared to others to make sure they didn’t freeze or get damaged. The Swedish fish will always be the extra touch!!!
I love this plant. I purchased several of these for a new 40B tank. They look great and have started to increase in size. The plants were full and had lot's of leaves.
