This well-growing swordplant cultivar has leaves with red-brown spots, as well as Echinodorus ‘Ozelot’, but differs by light to middle green basic colour, causing an especially contrasting pattern. Otherwise it is similar to the normal ‘Ozelot’: the submerged leaves are narrowly elliptic with wavy edge; the leaf rosette gets about 40-50 cm tall and 40 cm broad.

Also this Echinodorus is an easy aqurium plant, however it benefits much from bottom fertilization (e.g. by nutrition capsules) and medium to strong lighting.

The Green Ozelot swordplant looks best as a solitary plant or small, loose group in the midground to background of bigger, at least 50 cm high aquariums.

Transitioning process – emersed to submersed growth in your aquarium

  • Provide good water conditions for your plants
  • Dose a respectable aquatic fertilizer for your plants , follow the instructions from the manufacturer
  • Provide the correct lighting spectrum , based on the plants needs
  • Prune dead leaves and stems constantly
  • A Co2 system is a good addition into your aquarium for the plants to flourish
  • Conduct 20-30% water changed once a week to ensure good water conditions
  • Patience is key for the transition to take place

In a few days, after placing your plants in the aquarium you will notice some of the leaves start to melt and fall away.

This means the transition process has started. Please note the plants might look DEAD, but they are fully alive, so do not panic. After a few days you will notice new growth will appear and the plant will fully change its form into submersed growth. Continuous trimming and fertilization is needed for the plants to thrive in your aquarium. All plants have specific needs but if you follow the general instructions on our labels the plant will transition well and will eventually succeed and prosper in your aquarium.
