Echinodorus Ozelot Red is a decorative aquatic plant in the Echinodorus family. This particular species is a decorative hybrid between Echinodorus Barthii and Echinodorus Schluteri. Echinodorus Ozelot Red features large reddish-brown leaves with dark spot markings all throughout. These appear darker on newly sprouted leaves but Echinodorus Ozelot Red retains this interesting pattern into maturity. Like most Echinodorus species, Echinodorus Ozelot Red is great for beginners and is fairly undemanding in care. Just like other aquarium sword variants, this aquatic plant should be planted directly into a quality aquarium substrate to encourage growth as swords are known for heavily absorbing nutrients via their root system. This plant can be grown emersed and submerged and is typically very adaptive to a wide range of aquarium tank conditions.
Propagation is simple. Separate and replant. Once established, regular trimming will be required.

Tissue culture plants are grown in-vitro by laboratories who specialize in propagating aquatic plants. There is a huge selection of plant species that have been propagated this way. This is truly the best option for those who want absolutely zero unwanted pests, algae and pesticides. This makes them perfect for shrimp keepers and any planted tank enthusiasts alike.
NOTE: It is important to remove the tissue culture agar gel before planting. Simply wash the gel away, divide, and plant.
