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.
